mc + ncurses-6.1
« on: Thu Apr 05 18:37:59 2018 »
I noticed that midnight commander does not work correctly with the ncurses-6.1 package. Returned to version 6.0. Everything turned out well.

To enable the mode 256 colors had to recompile midnight commander with the option

--with-screen=ncurses

on the option

...
# Depends on: pcre glib gpm perl
...
--with-screen=slang

hello cdrw,

with this new option, do you recompile mc with ncurses 6.1 ?

The order of installation of packages like this.
In the Midnight Commander window the mouse biter didn't work.
I replaced the ncurses version from 6.1 to 6.0.
The mouse began to work. But Midnight Commander did not understand the color schemes of 256 colors.
I installed Slang and recompiled Midnight Commander with the --with-screen=slang option.
After that, Midnight Commander works as I need.

Installed Nutyx-10.2. The error with ncurses is the same. Recompiled mc with the - slang option.

I was convinced that Pkgfiles was to blame. I copied a package from Slackware64, it works. I will look further.
