I tried building dpkg and apt on BLFS 5.0 without success. I followed the
tips from "BLFS TIPS". Till now not a single package has failed during make
and this is the first one. I am running KDE 3.1.4. As mentioned in the TIP, I
used dpkg 1.9.21 and apt 0.5.4. (dpkg_1.9.21.tar.gz & apt_0.5.4.tar.gz).
make fails and from the error it seems that ncurses is involved. On googling,
I found a similar problem but there was no solution.
Commands I executed and the error I get are as follows:
$ tar xzvf dpkg_1.9.21.tar.gz
$ cd dpkg-1.9.21
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr --admindir=/var/lib/dpkg
$ mv doc/Makefile doc/Makefile.bak
$ sed 's/^all: /&# /g; s/^install: /&# /g' doc/Makefile.bak > doc/Makefile
In file included from curkeys.cc:31:
curkeys.h:168: error: `KEY_EVENT' was not declared in this scope
make: *** [curkeys.o] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/root/downloads/dpkg-1.9.21/dselect'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 2
Am I missing something here? I reinstalled ncurses to see if anything happens
but the error doesnt go. Is it possible to edit some source file to get rid
of this error? Any help would be appreciated.
