Description Jes Sorensen 2000-09-03 21:48:53 EDT

The tcltk SRPM cannot compile the tkinter sub-package without tcltk already
being installed because it expects to find tk.h in the normal include path.


gcc -fPIC  -DWITH_APPINIT -I/usr/local/include -DWITH_TIX -g -O2
-I./../Include -I.. -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -c ./_tkinter.c
./_tkinter.c:79:16: tk.h: No such file or directory
./_tkinter.c:84:10:         #error "Tk 4.0 or 3.x are not supported -- use
4.1 or higher"
make[1]: *** [_tkinter.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [sharedmods] Error 2
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-10-06 17:34:48 EDT
This appears to be a python build problem , changing component.
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-08-13 19:53:42 EDT
Python is a separate package, and buildrequires tcltk.... no problem there.
