Upgraded Fedora 24, Gradle status text does not show

Prior to upgrading to Fedora 24, I would see output from Gradle like the following:

> Loading
> Configuring project 0/20
> Executing test 39 of 4049, 12 skipped.

I've read that users often set
in order to disable this output; however, my
environment variable is set to

Could someone tell me what I need to set or change under Fedora 24 (which seemed to exist in Fedora 23) to allow me to get this Gradle output?


The problem is that Gradle is wanting to use ncurses5 where it seems Fedora 24 install comes with an older version, thus causing the issue. This can be seen by running gradle --debug and seeing the following output:

[DEBUG] [] Unable to load from native-platform backed Consol eDetector. Continuing with fallback. Failure: net.rubygrapefruit.platform.NativeException: Failed to load native library 'libnative-pl' for Linux amd64. caused by: java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /home/dkowis/.gradle/native/19/linux-amd64/ c annot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The temporary solution is to create a symbolic link to the new library as follows:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/

After doing this, Gradle now outputs the build status text as it did previously.
