Hey all

After a ncurses error while using sup (mail client in ruby) [error

The problem was: ‘couldn’t initialize curses color pair 4, 0 (key
1)’ (error type ArgumentError)
A backtrace follows:

I decided I should try reinstalling ncurses and the like on my Mac OS

So the main reason i’m writing is… What techniques did other
people use for installing ncurses, and what should I watch out for?

English is like a pseudo-random number generator - there are a
bajillion rules to it, but nobody cares.

Isn’t it already installed in OS X?

Supposedly, but the error still persists. Any hints?

If you’re not living on the edge,
then you’re just wasting space.
