  • SAMTool install error about curses

    Hi all,
    When I install SAMTool 0.1.8 on linux, I got error: cannot find -lcurses
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    But I have libncurses.so installed under /usr/lib.
    After run rpm -qa | grep ncurses, I got:
    ncurses-devel-5.5-18.11
    ncurses-5.5-18.11
    yast2-ncurses-2.13.68-0.3
    ncurses-devel-32bit-5.5-18.11
    ncurses-32bit-5.5-18.11
    It seemed I've installed dependencies.
    Did I miss something? Thanks.

      Problem Solved

      I ran into this problem as well. To get around it, change the makefile from
      Code:
      LIBCURSES= -lcurses
      to

      Code:
      LIBCURSES= -lncurses
      That should fix the problem.

          thank you, RockChalkJayhawk. I had a same problem and your answer solved the problem.

          Open SUSE 11.3
          samtools 0.1.18
          =======================================
          $ pwd
          /opt/utillities/samtools/samtools-0.1.18
          $ vi Makefile
          - change a line in "Makefile" as follows
          -------------------------------------------------
          original: LIBCURSES= -lcurses # -lXCurses
          changed: LIBCURSES= -lncurses # -lXCurses
          --------------------------------------------------
          $ make
          - compile worked well
          ========================================

            I had to install ncurses-devel to make this work. I also changed the Makefile as suggested above.

            cheers

                Not sure this is the appropriate thread for this problem.

                Anyhow, it looks like you're missing zlib. Did you try installing zlib-devel. If you're on RedHat/Fedora/CentOS, try

                sudo yum install zlib-devel

                //D

                  do yum install ncurses-devel , i hpe it will solve th issue

                  recommended for Centos , RHEL

                    On an Ubuntu box all you will need is:

                    Code:
                    sudo apt-get install libncurses5 libncurses5-dev
                    to solve the missing curses.h file not found error

                      Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
                      by seqadmin


                      Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

                      Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
                      by seqadmin


                      Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
