can you elaborate more? where did libncurses.ixlibrary came from? is a fille from an instalation? are you trying to open it from another program? what program if so? just says "Can't open libncurses.ixlibrary" and nothing else?

i can't determine what's wrong with just the info you posted

looking on aminet I found ncurses-5.5-1-usr-m68k.
I made the usr: assign and tested bastet.

bastet does work if you set the TERM variable before you start bastet itself:
1> setenv TERM amiga
1> bastet

not all keys work, but this way it does start.
basket you can stop by using CTRL-C in the shell it is running.

the usr: folder holds many different terminal configs, one of them is amiga.
just take a look, there are many more you can test:
1> setenv TERM amiga-f
1> setenv TERM commodore
1> setenv TERM ansi

random thoughts:

it might try to look in /usr/share/ for termcap files and thats what it needs the USR: assign for.

it might not link 'unix-side' because of a missing LDPATH environment variable
