installing neuron rpm on fedora core 7

Post by tom_morse »

I received the following error during compiling mod files on fedora core 7 with the NEURON -- Release 6.0.1 (1780) 2007-06-12 nrnivmodl:

...

Code: Select all

Michael pointed out this could be fixed by adding a symbolic link to my existing ncurses library file. Here is a sample symbolic link adding command and the changes to the /lib directory:

Code: Select all

 cd /lib
[root@localhost lib]# ls *ncurse*
libncurses.so.5  libncurses.so.5.6
[root@localhost lib]# ln -s libncurses.so.5.6 libncurses.so
[root@localhost lib]# ls -la *ncurse*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     17 2007-09-04 07:50 libncurses.so -> libncurses.so.5.6
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     17 2007-05-25 15:45 libncurses.so.5 -> libncurses.so.5.6
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 130932 2007-03-08 09:18 libncurses.so.5.6
