it looks like mandrake ships with a newer version of curses. You could
try a --force when rpm -U, but this may break things...The ncurses
changes we provide only give winterm compatibility which should not be a
problem unless you are running curses based programs from IRIX winterms.

do you need to rebuild the arc loader? are you doing this from windows?

Rome is a great city. I visited Italy this summer, rented a car, and
drove around Tuscana for two weeks. Went wine tasting and went to the
beach. I had the best pizza ever in a small restaurant in the heart of
Rome near the Via Del Banchi Nuovi but I cannot remember the name...
Can you please send me the .config file you used. I will attempt to
build it myself. We build a kernel rpm with our distribution...maybe
you should use the:
as your config file. The error looked like a compiler error...hmm.
You may be better off using the 2.2.10 kernel for the time being seeing
that the 2.2.13 kernel has not been 100% tested...I will try it out here
and see what I can find.
