Upgrading Acer TX to Wheezy.  I'm having trouble running "make
menuconfig" for a new kernel:

tom@tx:/opt/src/linux-3.1.5$ make menuconfig
 *** Unable to find the ncurses libraries or the
 *** required header files.
 *** 'make menuconfig' requires the ncurses libraries.
 *** Install ncurses (ncurses-devel) and try again.
make[1]: *** [scripts/kconfig/dochecklxdialog] Error 1
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2

And yes, I do have libncurses5-dev installed:

Actually, I don't..  Funny.  What is that about?

Now after installing it works.  I did install some build stuff for
building a debian kernel, maybe that fixed it?  Now it works.  Brain

So, aborted upgrade.  Let's leave it at mixed squeeze/wheezy for now.
