Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2019-05-08 13:25:34 CEST
SUSE has moved libncurses.so.5 to their legacy repository on SLE 15. This means that a default installation won't have this and tl-setup will fail to install it.

We don't currently use libncurses.so.5, but we still require it because of our requirement of LSB core libraries.
Comment 1 Pierre Ossman cendio 2019-05-08 13:26:42 CEST
We've decided to drop this requirement. We won't change the documentation at this point though in order to keep it simple. However we will update tl-setup and our automatic tests.
Comment 3 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2019-07-16 11:53:47 CEST
tl-setup is now updated to no longer require libncurses.so.5. Our automatic tests did not need to be modified.
Comment 4 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2019-07-17 10:25:05 CEST
Verified that tl-setup no longer looks for libncurses.

When using build 6180 of ThinLinc on SLES 15 I first ensured that libncurses wasn't installed, then installed ThinLinc and ran tl-setup. tl-setup didn't care that it wasn't installed, and ThinLinc was setup and could run without problems.
