Description John Cagle 2000-07-20 21:16:24 EDT
Two problems:

1) The tixwish binary, /usr/bin/tixwish4.1.8.3, should be called /usr/bin/tixwish (see tixwish man page).
2) The tixwish binary segfaults.

To reproduce:

* Install Redhat 7.0 Beta 3 with the tix package (this is a standard install).
* Now cd /usr/lib/tix4.1/demos. This is a location of a sample script called widget.

* ERROR #1: When invoking ./widget, the script is rejected because there is not tixwish (exec: tixwish not found).
This is easy to fix, though, so rename /usr/bin/tixwish4.1.8.3 to /usr/bin/tixwish.

* ERROR #2: Now re-invoke ./widget, and the script causes a segmentation fault.
Comment 1 Glen Foster 2000-07-21 14:30:04 EDT
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Gold-release
Comment 2 John Cagle 2000-07-24 18:00:45 EDT
Not fixed in beta4.
Comment 3 John Cagle 2000-07-27 18:36:56 EDT
Not fixed in pinstripe (beta 5).
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2000-07-27 18:44:44 EDT
Um, the package didn't change between beta4 and beta5 either, as tcltk was not
rebuilt
because of a mis-compiled col. I have later packages if you are willing to
check,
send me <jbj@redhat.com> mail privately and I'll send you the packages.
Comment 5 Jeff Johnson 2000-08-03 16:55:48 EDT
Fixed in tcltk-8.3.1-44 AFAIK. Please reopen if not.
Comment 6 John Cagle 2000-08-03 18:22:38 EDT
I installed all the new RPMs you emailed me, and tixwish now seems to work.

However, I got these errors during the "rpm -Uvh" of the RPMs:

# rpm -Uvh *

/usr/lib/libtixsam.so: broken symbolic link to libtixsam4.1.8.3.so

Are these errors OK??
Comment 7 John Cagle 2000-08-08 18:13:52 EDT
Do the ldconfig errors during RPM install indicate any problems?
Comment 8 Jeff Johnson 2000-08-09 09:22:56 EDT
No they do not indicate an important problem. There's a symlink in the package
to a
library that has been removed, the symlink has been removed as well in a later
version
of the package (You can do the same using /bin/rm on the symlink).
