Make sure you have the multilib-devel group installed before reporting issues while building the package. I will not add it as a makedepends because it is not a makedepends for lib32-ncurses5 either. See

If anyone is still having trouble getting used to PGP signing, make sure to add the key mentioned in the PKGBUILD:

$ gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 19882D92DDA4C400C22C0D56CC2AF4472167BE03

Still having issues w/ the package. Tried to install manually with pkgbuild. No dice. Install is definitely failing when curses.h is being generated, at that point something is going wrong. Not sure where to look. Would appreciate any help.

All requirements are installed.

I have both multilib-devel and lib32-gcc-libs installed. Running into this issue when attempting to compile:

In file included from ../ncurses/build.priv.h:70,
                 from ./tinfo/make_hash.c:40:
../include/curses.h:1510:9: error: macro names must be identifiers
 1510 | #define 6               0000            /* */
      |         ^

unsure whether this is an error on my system or int he package.

As far as I'm aware, is gone. Its DNS record is non-existent. seems like a decent enough alternative

Apologies for the long delay, the 6.3 release happened at exactly the wrong time for me! I've now updated the PKGBUILD to 6.3 and imported the latest changes to the lib32-ncurses PKGBUILD (keeping everything in sync is a bit tedious).

Will this be updated?

please add multilib-devel as a dependency this package won't build otherwise.

@heller390: right, if programs compiled with gcc -m32 cannot be run, then I'm not sure how this package is going to be useful to you ;) It looks like WSL1 has no 32-bit support, but WSL2 does, see: . Either way I'm not a WSL user so I can't help you much here.

@Corax programs compiled with gcc32 are not running.They are giving exec format error. I couldn't find the dir for src/ncurses-6.2/config.log. Could you point out the exact path?

Corax commented on 2020-05-25 11:02 (UTC)

@heller390: see what I recommended duff to try below. It would also be useful if you uploaded src/ncurses-6.2/config.log somewhere.
