I just upgraded from fedora 23 to 24, and it broke some binaries I have on my system that were not installed from fedora's repositories, due to the ncurses upgrade from version 5 to version 6:

error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I wonder whether it's possible to install in parallel ncurses5 & 6 on fedora 24 so I can keep using these binaries? After all that would be the whole point of having these version postfixes, parallel installation right? But I don't see a ncurses5 fedora 24 package...? So.. is it possible?

got the answer in another forum:

use a file search :

# dnf provides */

.... and the reply is ncurses-compat-libs-6.0

Install :

# dnf install ncurses-compat-libs
