Subject:can't find libncurses on ./configure but not rpm distro!
Date:14:41:09 24/12/2005

hi all, I'm trying to compile kismet on my ubuntu laptop

matteo@ubuntu:~/download/kismet-2005-08-R1$ ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking for group 'root'... yes
checking for group 'man'... checking for initscr in -lncurses... no
configure: WARNING: Unable to find libncurses
checking for initscr in -lcurses... no
configure: error: Unable to find libncurses or libcurses

configure comes out with this error, but I'm pretty sure linbcurses is installed. I read the troubleshooting section, and it suggest to get foo-devel.rpm if distro is rpm based.. but this is not my case, what should i do? Thanks
