@artbody: is that a question? Is there a problem with the package as it is now?

package is also needed by Quartus ModelSim (Altera)
newest release is published Nov 2017

@yorickr: how strange, it's now 404 for me as well... The lib32-ncurses package has been flagged out-of-date for 3 months now, so I guess I'll just ignore it and use the same release as the ncurses package.

@Corax a friend of mine tested the same page and it showed up for him as well, though I got a 404 through my browser and curl. Perhaps this has to do with the servers CDN?

@yorickr: this is really weird, this very page lists ncurses-6.0-20170527.tgz for me... I don't think using another (close) version will cause you any major trouble though.

The mirror used by lib32-ncurses ( appears to not have version 20170527 available. I'm getting errors trying to install this package (as the mirror used by this package also doesn't have that version available).

I've changed _pkgver locally to 6.0-20170603 which makes it install without issue but I'm uncertain if there are any major changes between these two versions.

@jmsq: I unflagged the package because I want to keep it in sync with lib32-ncurses, which is still on 6.0-20170527. Isn't the mirror link working for you?

@ibrokemypie @nathanchance Thanks for the heads-up. The other ncurses packages are no longer using the FTP server source. I've pulled in the latest changes from lib32-ncurses (6.0+20170527-1), including the new source URL.

It now appears the mirror is down, I had to revert back to the address in order to get it to install.

needed the line source=(${_pkgbasename}/${_pkgbasename}-${pkgver}.tar.gz{,.asc})
as the current source is down for me
