Description Jonathan Kamens 2000-06-07 04:39:11 EDT
I saw this error when building the tcltk RPM:

/bin/sh: [: tk8.0/pkgIndex.tcl: binary operator expected
        No pkgIndex.tcl found in the target directories.
        pkgIndex.tcl installation skipped.

The problem is that since the spec file links the tk8.0 directory to tk8.2,
the command "if [ -f */pkgIndex.tcl ]; then" in the Tix unix/Makefile.in is
no longer valid because the wildcard matches to files.

The spec file should probably rename the directory instead of linking it.
Comment 1 Jonathan Kamens 2000-06-07 04:41:13 EDT
But it needs to rename the directory after applying the patches, or the patches
will fail :-).

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2000-06-10 09:40:35 EDT
Fixed (as described) in tcltk-3.2.1-40. Thanks for the patch.

This "patch" should not be needed with tix 8.1.3 or 8.1.4.

Can you confirm for me that this is no longer in the tcltk package?

I have a new minor release ready to go but not yet announced.
Would you like to try it out and see if there are any problems
before I announce it. It's a bugfix release with no major changes
to the configure/make.

Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2002-12-12 01:16:05 EST
That is correct this patch is no longer in, and
hasn't been for a good while.

(In fact there is only one patch currently being applied
which is for itcl-3.2.1.)
