Comment 1 petr_kristof 1998-11-12 06:48:59 UTC
I resolved it.
There is no dependence defined between the rpm packages for it.
After instaling tix, its running.
You should rebuild some packages with corrected REQUIRENAME in .spec file.

The specific requirement is glint needs to require tkinter.
This will be fixed in whatever the next release of glint is.
