Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187742
base python package not configured for Tk
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
base Python rpm doesn't appear to be configured to use tkinter
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run > python /usr/lib/python2.4/lib-tk/Tkinter.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 38, in ?
import _tkinter # If this fails your Python may not be configured for Tk
ImportError: libTix8.4.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Import library Tkinter without complaint
Sorry if this is a requested feature and not a bug, python tkinter support was
in previous FC releases.
Alternative Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start python
2. >>> import Tkinter
Python or Tkinter looks for libTix8.4.so which lives in /usr/lib/Tix8.4 and
isn't in the default library path. I added a dynamic link in /usr/lib from
libTix8.4.so to Tix8.4/libTix8.4.so ... is this bad?
I'm sorry I don't quite know where to file this, or if it's a genuine bug.
Many thanks, Dan
