Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189567
i8kutils depends on tcl but yum didn't install it
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:31 EST
Description of problem:
I did a barebones installation due to constant freezes/lockups on my stupid Dell
Inspiron 8100 laptop (which I believe are due to overheating, as the fans never
turn on during installation). Anyway, first package I installed with yum was
i8kutils, which pulled down a few dependencies -- but not tcl. I was unable to
run i8kmon, because i8kmon requires tcl to be installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a very minimal install, not including tcl
2. yum install i8kutils
3. i8kmon --daemon &
Get an error about tcl or tclsh being an unknown file/executable or whatever.
tcl gets installed as part of the yum command and everything works great
I'm assuming this is just a forgotten requires in the .spec file. Kick me if
that's a bad assumption and this should be filed elsewhere.
Indeed, the tcl requirement was still missing, even after the recent addition of
the tk requirement. This is fixed in CVS, so expect new packages to appear
anytime soon (once the build system is available again, it's undergoing
maintenance right now).
New packages are built and should be pushed out shortly. Thanks for the report!
