For me I found this article in my travels awhile back but I lost the URL. In it, this like showed a mailing list from RedHat.com that stated that *****X worked in FC1 and FC2, but not FC3. The moderator of that mailing list told the person with the problem to seek out help with the developers of *****X. So, I too have gone tat route and after reading the FAQ from faq.*****x.org, the fix is ncurses. OF which I have installed version 5.4 from the FC3 CD's. I have tried to resolve this error but to no avail. I posted my error at cyberpunkz.org and got the same answer of the fix. I've bailed on installing *****X on FC3 for now because it has no problem installing on just about every Linux, UNIX and *BSD variant on the planet, except FC3.

Now... the error points to a duplicate tparm in ncurses.h. I found some article that showed that FC3 also has problem with duplicate tparm errors with mySQL and Apache. The fix I sw was to rename the file to something else and recompile *****X anyway. Along the way or afterwards, you change the name back and everything works. The problem with thsi fix is that there is more than one reference. I could run X-Chat like this veteran Linux user suggested at linuxquestions.org, but I want mah *****X doggonit! If I wanted X-Chat, I wouldn't be here trying to get my problem solved like the link at the head of this post got.

So ther are a few questions that need to be answered before I hax0r the o/s to pieces.


Question 1: Has anyone been able to get *****X 1.1 working in Fedora 4 Test 1?

Question 2: Has anyone been able to get *****X 1.1 working in Fedora 3?

Question 3: Has anyone been able to get *****X 1.1 working in Fedora 2?

Question 4: Has anyone been able to get *****X 1.1 working in Fedora 1?

Question 5: If you answered "yes" to any of the questions from 1-4, what was the version of ncurses that is installed? Did you get an error message like the one below? What was your solution?
