Why doesn't f37 have ncurses-compat-libs

Why doesn’t f37 have ncurses-compat-lib
Is There another alternative?
I need to run programs that use ncurses-compat-libs

Welcome to ask :fedora: please take a minute to read, Welcome to Ask Fedora! Please read me first!

It looks like it was dropped with this commit

There’s a short conversation on the devel list about it.

I’m pretty new to Fedora and thought to upgrade to f37 but got the message:

Problem: package local-6.5.1-20221101.2.x86_64 requires ncurses-compat-libs, but none of the providers can be installed

  • ncurses-compat-libs-6.2-9.20210508.fc36.x86_64 does not belong to a distupgrade repository
  • problem with installed package local-6.5.1-20221101.2.x86_64

I’m not sure what to do at this point. I tried the suggested --skip-broken option but that doesn’t seem to help.

Is there any place I can go for more information please.

I seem to have fixed it - it was the localwp package - now called just local - uninstalled it and now all good.
