Description Alan Hoyle 2000-11-14 22:16:38 UTC
Several components of the Control Panel appear to require libtcl8.0.so,
which is not included in the tcl-8.3.1-46.rpm installe by the RH7.0
installer.  Older version of tcl which include that lib, cannot be
installed symulataneously without breaking other things.

THis prevents me from using much of the control-panel's functionality.

I'm able to start each of the tools in the control panel on my test machine. 
Which components are you referring to?  Which versions of those components do
you have installed?


Comment 2 Alan Hoyle 2000-11-21 22:11:33 UTC
I think this answers the second part of your question:

$ rpm -q control-panel
control-panel-3.18-2
$ rpm -q --whatrequires control-panel
printtool-3.54-1
pythonlib-1.27-1
timetool-2.7.4-3
$

In answer to the first part, here is the console output from running
control-panel and clicking on each icon in sequence:  (The last icon which runs
linuxconf does run successfully.)

It works fine in the current release, so i'm closing this bug to reflect the
resolution of it.

Read ya, Phil
