[abrt] tk: Blt_NodeToEntry(): wish8.6 killed by SIGABRT
Last modified: 2016-07-19 14:45:25 EDT
Description of problem:
The BLT TCL/TK modules massively crash in TK thus the running wish is inflicted and terminates with sig-11/ core dump.
Run the demos in the 'demos' directory in the of the package (Fedora-22&23): /usr/share/tcl8.6/blt2.4/demos )
to reproduce. This happens on FEdora-22&23 and on CentOS-7 all the same way.
Most demos crash on termination. The 'hierbox' module crashes on startup.
Anyway, in this state BLT cannot be used reliably.
Version-Release number of selected component:
cmdline: /usr/bin/wish ./hiertable1.tcl
runlevel: N 5

I have been digging a bit deeper ...
You can forget about this.
This says _clearly_ that BLT in version 2.4 it not compatible; neither with TCL/TK 8.5 (in Fedora-22) nor in TCL/TK-8.6 (in Fedora-23).
So, on CentOS-7 it _cannot_ work as well:
[root@clumas ~]# cat /etc/centos-release
CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511 (Core)
[root@clumas ~]# rpm -qa| grep -i tcl-8
BLT should be removed from distributions that have TCL/TK >=8.5
installed. It just produces crashes and core dumps.
See the above TCL/TK wiki page for replacements.
Best regards ...
