Description RevRagnarok 2008-03-21 00:04:23 UTC
Description of problem: The autopath of tcl is not properly being set to something reasonable like "/usr/share/tcl8.4/tcl8.4" but instead odd-ball things like "/build/xfndry8/J.36/env/TDS/Tcl/dist/export/lib" Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): tcl-8.4.17-1.fc8 tk-8.4.17-2.fc8 How reproducible: Every time Steps to Reproduce: 1. Whenever I tried running a tcl/tk installer that I cannot share Actual results: "Application init failed ... This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly." Expected results: Installer to run. Additional info: My ugly solution is found at the URL. But to repeat: mkdir -p /build/xfndry8/J.36/env/TDS/Tcl/dist/export/lib cd /build/xfndry8/J.36/env/TDS/Tcl/dist/export/lib ln -s /usr/share/tcl8.4/tcl8.4 /build/xfndry8/J.36/env/TDS/Tcl/dist/export/lib cd /usr/lib mv tk8.4 tk8.4_orig ln -s /usr/share/tk8.4 tk8.4 cp tk8.4_orig/pkgIndex.tcl tk8.4

Could you be more precise with steps to reproduce? We don't support tcl/tk for years. What's tcl/tk installer? Yum install it in normal path "/usr/share/tcl8.4".
Comment 2 RevRagnarok 2008-03-21 09:42:11 UTC
The installer is a program I got from another company to install their software that happened to be written in tcl/tk. That was just what I happened to be executing, sorry for the confusion. Yum installs into /usr/share/tcl8.4, however the tclsh and wish shells don't look there, instead they are looking at some weird directory "/build/xfndry8/J.36/env/TDS/Tcl/dist/export/lib" almost like the rpm build scripts are broken.
Comment 3 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-03-25 14:22:29 UTC
I read your blogspot ;-) As you are saying, you are using third party program. I can't test it. Fedora paths are a little different from other distro tcl paths, because we want libraries in lib and share objects in share. But as you can see on my F-8, I can't avoid your problem: [root@somewhere]# tclsh % puts $auto_path /usr/share/tcl8.4 /usr/share /usr/lib /usr/lib/tcl8.4 % exit [root@somewhere]# rpm -q tcl tk tcl-8.4.17-1.fc8 tk-8.4.17-2.fc8 Did you try to reinstall tcl? Couldn't be this path added with some tcl module?
Comment 4 RevRagnarok 2008-04-02 22:09:12 UTC
I now see recognize the xfndry8 and J.38 part - it's the Xilinx 8 software that hosed up my install. Sorry!
