libncurses, terminfo and alternate install destination
|Reported by:||eschoeller@…||Owned by:||developers|
The terminfo directory is read by many ncurses enabled applications (iftop, nano) in /user/share/terminfo. When installing libncurses to a destination other than root, this terminfo directory isn't read by these ncurses applications and the following errors occur:
Error opening terminal: vt102.
# ln -s /opt/usr/share/terminfo/ /usr/share/
(where /opt/ is my alternate opkg destination where I installed libncurses)
I'm not sure if this is within the scope of the package maintainers, or even openwrt in general to maintain proper functionality of this package when installing to a separate destination.
