  • 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

                    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
