Fedora 26 rpm install. libtinfo

Post by vrossum » Wed Sep 27, 2017 9:37 am

Install of nrn-7.5.x86_64.rpm on Fedora 26 fails with

libtinfo.so.5(NCURSES_TINFO_5.0.19991023)(64bit) is needed by nrn-7.5-master1650.x86_64


ncurses-compat-libs-6.0-8.20170212.fc26.x86_64
does install
/usr/lib64/libtinfo.so.5
/usr/lib64/libtinfo.so.5.9
but that is apparently not sufficient.

I build the rpm on a ubuntu 16.4 machine and
ldd /usr/local/bin/nrniv
gives as one of its output lines
libtinfo.so.5 => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtinfo.so.5 (0x00007f74848b3000)

Did you get the error message during the installation process or when you tried to execute the program. If the latter what is the result of ldd /usr/local/bin/nrniv
I thought the dynamic loader would look in a well-known list of places for shared libraries but if that ldd path is preserved
I am wondering if it might be sufficient to copy or make a link to libtinfo.so.5 in /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
