 Going through my daily ritual of update and upgrade, I've been having trouble 
 with ncurses.

 this problem?

I'm not sure, since I reflashed since experiencing this problem, but I
was getting that on the same setup as I have now but with
http://rabenfrost.net/celtune/celtune-rabenfrost.conf in /etc/opkg.

Perhaps the ncurses from that repo is broken?

I had it.  I forcibly removed libncurses5 and everything is fine.
ncurses no longer depends on libncurses5.

There's a bug in TRAC for this:
https://docs.openmoko.org/trac/ticket/1569

The fix there went from in testing to bug closed in the last  
couple of days, so presumably it works. Please confirm.

Also, could you possibly post to the list in plain text, not HTML?

Stroller.

This is exactly the problem.  I applied the recommended fix:

opkg -force-depends remove libncurses5
opkg install ncurses libncurses5

Now everything seems to be up-to-date.  Thanks!

Should this be in the wiki somewhere, or will new users not have this
problem if they update/upgrade directly from the factory image?

Also, could you possibly post to the list in plain text, not HTML?


Sure, I could.  I thought it would be more clear to post the transcript in
fixed font.  Doesn't it come through as multi-part-alternative anyway, so
you should have a plain-text version too?  It seems the richer markup is
often useful.

opkg update, opkg upgrade still results in the same error

But the forced remove above resolves it for me also, a subseqent update, 
upgrade gives no errors.

It needs to go somewhere, anyone upgrading actory-installed 2007.2 image 
without re-flashing will hit this error message until the forced remove 
is done.

I believe that '-force-overwrite' allows the upgrade to proceed
without necessitating an uninstall.

Since OM documentation is so sparse, I have assumed that Debian dpkg
command line options would work, as long as you get the syntax right.
