New issue 607: ncurses dev required https://bitbucket.org/yt_analysis/yt/issue/607/ncurses-dev-required
VISTA synoptic tools:
Linux version 188.8.131.52-32.fc15.x86_64 (email@example.com) (gcc version 4.6.0 20110530 (Red Hat 4.6.0-9) (GCC) ) #1 SMP Mon Jun 13 19:49:05 UTC 2011
On running the yt install script: Got a few warnings but it seemed to churn through OK Issue appears on ipython session from: "/home/???????/yt-x86_64/bin/./ipython" as user: Since NO "tcl"-like features,
<up-arrow> for example puts out spurious chars.
Solution: Appears ncurses-dev is required. So as root I ran:
yum install ncurses-devel This seemed to fix the issue. So the reason readline can't compile is it can't find libncurses -<ngoldbaum>
