Hi.

I'm trying to install kernel sources to my target host but I'm stuck with ncurses. The install process kinda "loops" forever (at least I get exasperated before it ends) on this instruction
Code:
tic -x -s -o /usr/armv5tejl-softfloat-linux-uclibc/tmp/portage/sys-libs/ncurses-5.7-r1/image//usr/share/terminfo terminfo.tmp

Here's what I get on the console:
Code:
...
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/armv5tejl-softfloat-linux-uclibc/tmp/portage/sys-libs/ncurses-5.7-r1/work/narrowc/test'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install'.

** Building terminfo database, please wait...
Running tic to install /usr/armv5tejl-softfloat-linux-uclibc/tmp/portage/sys-libs/ncurses-5.7-r1/image//usr/share/terminfo ...

   You may see messages regarding extended capabilities, e.g., AX.
   These are extended terminal capabilities which are compiled
   using
      tic -x
   If you have ncurses 4.2 applications, you should read the INSTALL
   document, and install the terminfo without the -x option.


Can anyone help?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Okay, I might be learning crossdev rules the hard way: when things go wrong, make sure versions on both the compiling and target hosts are identical! [EDIT: or use --root-deps=rdeps...]

On my x86_64 host I had ncurses-5.6* and I was compiling version 5.7-r1 for ARM. Irony is version 5.6-r2 doesn't compile against ARM so I had to upgrade ncurses to version 5.7-r1 on my compiling host -- tic was failing so tic has been upgraded! :D

Problem solved.
