Thank-you for all your input!

yep! it didn't work.  I countn't find the libpanel.a library anywhere
in the SuSE 7.1 packages.  You would think that the static library would
be in the ncurses package.

I downloaded the ncurses project from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/ncurses/
- tar -x
- ./configure
- make
- make install

and the libraries are okay again!

That what was needed

So far I haven't had to much problems with "SuSe" Linux. What "Linux"
would YOU suggest?
