> Hello I am new to the world of Linux and have installed Fedora 8 on a Lenovo T60 computer. All is well in terms of drivers for hardware but I cannot seem to get Kismet installed. I have downloaded several GCC and ran the ./configure but when I try to make the file I get the following:
> make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
> I would post the config.log file but it is huge. There is one point during the ./configure report on the terminal that I see something that causes me to believe that this might be causing the problem and that is:
> checking for special C compiler options needed for large files... no
> checking for group 'man'... checking for initscr in -lncurses... no
> checking whether stat accepts an empty string... no
> checking return type of signal handlers... void
> checking whether byte ordering is bigendian... no
> That is pretty much it. Let me know if I should post the config.log file if that will help.

I get to additional messages at the bottom when I run ./configure:

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
