Hi, The RPMs that are online for TN5250 are quite out of date. It sounds like they want an older version of ncurses which is no longer used. I'd be a shame to install an older version just for this. Instead, I'd recommend installing from the tarball of the source code. This will cause TN5250 to use whichever version of ncurses is on your system. Plus, that way you won't be using a version of TN5250 that's 4 releases old. :) You can get the source at http://tn5250.sourceforge.net Good luck!
