Description of problem:
tcltk from FC1 has been split into tcl and tk. itcl used to be a
subpackage from tcltk in FC1, but it fails to be removed by
dependencies within FC2's packages. This was only clued to me due to
a single file conflict with tk.
Both tcl and tk should
Obsoletes: itcl <= 3.2
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Yes, the only conflict seems to be /usr/share/man/mann/panedwindow.n.gz
in itcl-3.2 and tk-devel-8.4.5.
Should be fixed in 8.4.5-8. Thanks a lot for catching this. :-)
both will be in rwahide tomorrow
I have an existing application looking for itcl. I see it is not in
package list for FC2 but is in FC1. Is it in the new tcl and tk
packages? I tried installing itcl from fc1 on my fc2 system. I
forced the overwrite of the panndwindow.n.gz to get it to install.
The application trys to run and seg faults. Any suggestions? I
probably did something I should not have? :)
itcl is unsupported in FC2, sorry. If strong reasoning can be given
to bring it back, then it is Petersen's decision as package maintainer
if the reasons are good enough to increase the maintenance burden in
re-adding and supporting it in FC2 updates and future products.
Jerry, I don't know, I see to remember testing it and it working
for me, but I could be wrong... have you tried rebuilding itcl
There haven't been that many requests for itcl: it would
probably be something good to contribute to Fedora Extras
in my opinion.
