When using the 2.6.31-10 kernel and trying to run powertop, dhclient or any other app that uses the libncurses.so.5 library, I get an error message like the following:
error while loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.5: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory
I know it's the kernel, or maybe a symptom of the kernel because I booted the default 2.6.28-15 kernel and the error message goes away and the apps work perfectly fine. Not sure what kernel option is doing it, but it's something in there.
This is on a stock CrunchBang Linux Lite 9.04 install, with nothing else modified after the initial install, excpet an "apt-get dist-upgrade" and the addition of Voria's repository.
