ncurses @6.0.0 does not provide libncurses.5.dylib needed by xcode

Reported by: Liontooth (David Liontooth) Owned by: MarcusCalhoun-Lopez (Marcus Calhoun-Lopez)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.3.4
Keywords: Cc: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)
Port: readline


As I update my macports installation I find that ncurses 6 does not provide libncurses.5.dylib, which xcode is expecting. Downgrading to ncurses 5.9 solves the problem. Is the problem that my xcode is too old? This is not a bug in ncurses, but an upgrade path problem in some circumstances.

Cheers, David

Owner: changed from macports-tickets@… to mcalhoun@…
Port: readline added

The problem is not Xcode, but the readline library in /opt/local/lib/libreadline.6.dylib, which is used during the build of the lame port. The readline port that installs this library was rev-bumped in r139469, so MacPorts should have rebuilt it first (unless lame or one of its dependencies does not declare a dependency on readine).

Additionally, rev-upgrade (which runs after each successful installation or upgrade by default) should have caught this problem and rebuilt readline against the new version of ncurses.

Status: newassigned

I am not sure why this is happening, but let's try to track down the problem.
What is the output of

port installed readline

Resolution: worksforme
Status: assignedclosed

According to an e-mail from the original poster, reinstallation fixed the problem.
Closing ticket since no one can reproduce the problem anymore.

There's nothing to track down really. It's all explained at wiki:ProblemHotlist#ncurses6
