Description Sergio Pascual 2006-04-04 05:28:00 EDT
Description of problem:
In fact this is a problem of the package tkinter, but it is not listed on the
component list in Buzgilla, sorry.

run python command line and load Tkinter. Tkinter fails loading.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run python command line
2. import Tkinter
Actual results:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  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

Expected results:

Additional info:
Package tix has moved libTix8.4.so from /usr/lib/libTix8.4.so to
/usr/lib/Tix8.4/libTix8.4.so and /usr/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload/_tkinter.so
can not find libTix. Should tkinter be rebuilt to be able to find ibTix8.4.so in
its new location?
