LDPS 1.0 lays an egg

Author: JT Smith

According to this opinion column on Linuxworld, the Linux Development Platform Specification falls far short of its goals. "Does it meet that goal? Not at all. Although LDPS 1.0 falls short in nearly every aspect, I can illustrate the problem through one example: ncurses. The ncurses library provides programmers a common way to write sophisticated character-mode applications. In order to be LDPS 1.0 compliant, a distribution must include either ncurses version 4.2 or ncurses version 5.0. "
