Description Jim Levie 2003-10-30 14:09:03 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
The -devel components of tcl & tk aren't included with the 3.0 ES distribution.
This results in not being able to build anything that needs the tcl and/or tk
header files or libraries. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
tcl-8.3.5-92 & tk-8.3.5-92

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild --rebuild rh-postgresql-7.3.4-8.src.rpm

Actual Results:  A build of anything that needs access to the -devel components
of tcl or tk will will fail. In this particular case rh-postgresql needs to
build rh-postgresql-tcl, which fails aborting the build.

Expected Results:  A build of a something that depends on tcl-devel and/or
tk-devel should work if those packages are present in the distribution and

Additional info:

The workaround is pretty easy. The missing packages can be built and installed
from the tcltk-8.3.5-92.src.rpm. however, that shouldn't be necessary and the
components should be in the 3.0 ES distribution.

I think it should also be noted that:

[root@rhel3 root]# rpm --redhatprovides /usr/include/tcl.h

yet the package does not exist.

AFAIK the -devel packages are now available in a channel on RHN.
Please re-open if that is not the case.
