Good Day! I am migrating my Caching DNS Server from Fedora 16 to Fedora 20 and for monitoring purposes I want to install the DNSTOP(

But unfortunately I wasn't able to proceed on installing DNSTOP due to some error. Fatal error actually.

I have attached a screenshot for your further analysis.

I really do appreciate your immediate feedback on this.

Welcome to AskFedora! Actually, that error occured because the file /usr/include/curses.h didn't exist. And that happens because you probably haven't installed. To check which packages that provides that, file do a:

$ sudo yum provides /usr/include/curses.h
That would give you something like this:
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks, refresh-packagekit

ncurses-devel-5.9-12.20130511.fc20.i686 : Development files for the ncurses library
Repo        : fedora
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/include/curses.h

ncurses-devel-5.9-12.20130511.fc20.x86_64 : Development files for the ncurses library
Repo        : fedora
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/include/curses.h

Depending on the architecture of your machine, you would need to execute either

$ yum install ncurses-devel-5.9-12.20130511.fc20.x86_64


$ yum install ncurses-devel-5.9-12.20130511.fc20.i686

or simply

$ yum install ncurses-devel
