tcl-devel-8.3.5-93 is missing important header files
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:33 EST
Description of problem:
The header files tclDecls.h and tclIntDecls.h
are missing from the tcl development library package
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
files are not present upon installation of the package
files are expected to be present in /usr/include upon installation of
These header files are needed in order to compile tcl applications.
It was necessary to download the tcl 8.3.5 source code from
SourceForge and move these header files into /usr/include in order
to successfully compile a tcl application.
% rpm -ql tcl-devel|grep include
ok, no tclIntDecls.h.
Wonder why it and the other include files aren't getting installed.
Apologies, I made an error in the original report.
tclDecls.h IS installed, and all of the include files in the package
are installed correctly.
The missing files are tclInt.h and tclIntDecls.h
These are not in the package and are therefore not installed.
Thus to clarify, there is no problem with files in the package being
installed, it is simply a case of files not being included in the package.
Ok, that's all right then. :)
The private header files needed to build tk and expect
are now included separately under /usr/include/tcl-private
in tcl-8.4.5-2 and later.
