Description Olle Liljenzin 2003-09-17 15:20:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows NT; DigExt)

Description of problem:
A program using tcltk and is linked on RH8 or earlier will require libtcl.so.0 
and libtk.so.0

The libraries in taroon-beta are installed with the names libtcl8.3.so and 

The program will not run on taroon-beta since the expected libraries are not 

On RH8 there are softlinks /usr/lib/libtcl8.3.so->libtcl.so.0 
and /usr/lib/libtk8.3.so->libtk.so.0, but not on taroon-beta, thus it does not 
help to link with the options '-ltk8.3 -ltcl8.3'.

We need a way to link a program so that it can run on both RH8 and Enterprise 
Linux, which is not possible now.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
tk-8.3.5-90, tcl-8.3.5-90

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1."readelf -d /usr/lib/libtcl8.3.so|grep SONAME"
2."readelf -d /usr/lib/libtk8.3.so|grep SONAME"

Actual Results:  RH8:


Expected Results:  The output should't differ

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2003-09-18 06:48:05 UTC
I suggest you either build on Taroon, in which case your executable will
be linked against /usr/lib/lib{tcl,tk}8.3.so and run on RHL 8.0, or create
/usr/lib/lib{tcl,tk}.so.0 symlinks on Taroon to run a binary built on 8.0.

Please see the duplicate bug for more details.
