XFree86 can't find libtermcap.so.2
Posted on 1997-03-03
I'm doing a fresh installation on a pentium 133 PC. I installed the Debian release from the Dec 96 InfoMagic Linux distribution. I'm using the 2.0.27 kernel and am using the X32A release to set up my X. I'm using the 3.2A because I have a Stealth 3D 3000 / Virge VX video adapter and 3.2A is the only version that properly supports it. So the thing runs through XF86Setup no problem and results in a working server. I can launch the server by typing X at the command prompt it initallizes and runs no problem. When I try to launch the interface by typing startx, it aborts with a message saying it can't find libtermcap.so.2 I did a "find / -name libtermcap.so.2 -print" and the file does not exist on my system. I have looked everywhere for it, release cd, ftp, the next door neighbor, etc. and can't find it. How do I get my X working?
