Sounds like you need to upgrade your ncurses *development*
package. Look for *ncurses*dev* on your install media.

1. Newbie Kernel Upgrade Question

I have RH Linux 6.2 installed, with the 2.2.14-1 kernel I believe (whatever
came in the CD-ROM). I understand that 2.2.16-3 is the latest (or closest
to). I would like to upgrade but don't know if I can do it all at once
(i.e. 2.2.14-1 ---> 2.2.16-3) or if I must do it incrementally (i.e.
2.2.14-1 ---> later 2.2.14-X versions ---> earlier 2.2.16-X versions --->

I excluded 2.2.15 from the above sequence because I believe 2.2.<odd #>
are development versions - please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thx in advance for your advice !!!
