What you need to do is install the ncurses-dev package:

apt-get install ncurses-dev

after that you should be good to go.

I used the SDK instructions on the Wiki page.
The download of gumstix-buildroot  worked and the next command of 'make defconfig; make' also worked.

But when I try and do the 'make menuconfig' like it says in the Display Wiki page I get the error that it can not find -lncurses.

  gumstix@colinux:$ make menuconfig
  make -C package/config ncurses conf mconf

  make[1]: *** [ncurses] Error 1
  make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/gumstix/gumstix-buildroot/package/config'
  make: *** [package/config/mconf] Error 2

One person said to include 'TARGTS+=nano' to get lncurses library built but this seems to be an old fix because of the new buildroot stucture.

I have also read the documentation in the docs directory and still no luck.
