Install the termcap package from an RPM. Go here[1] and choose your platform accordingly and download the relevant RPM file. If there is a termcap-devel package, install it as well. You can install (as root) using the following command 'rpm -Uvh package_name_goes_here.rpm'


NB: The correct thread for this post is on the OpenFOAM -> Installation section.
