Description Oskar Stuffer 2007-02-12 10:03:37 UTC
Description of problem:
A tcl script can't load the package Pgtcl

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
postgresql-tcl 8.1.8

How reproducible:
"package require Pgtcl" command in tcl script.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.$ tclsh
2.% package require Pgtcl

Actual results:
can't find package Pgtcl

Expected results:

Additional info:
The line:

package ifneeded Pgtcl 1.5.2 [list load [file join $dir libpgtcl1.5.2.so]]

is missing in file /usr/lib/Pgtcl/pkgIndex.tcl

Comment 1 Mathieu Larchet 2008-01-23 08:48:41 UTC
postgresql-tcl package doesn't include pgtclsh any more.
Shared library is deployed in /usr/lib/Pgtcl with no symlink in /usr/lib.
A workaround would be to place a pgtcl file in /etc/ld.conf.d including
/usr/lib/Pgtcl in the library path

This bug is open for a Fedora version that is no longer maintained and
will not be fixed by Fedora. Therefore we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen thus bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Comment 4 Willem Herremans 2008-06-18 15:47:20 UTC
This bug still exists in Fedora 9.

Maybe the cause is not the same as described above, but the result is the same:

"package require Pgtcl" returns "can't find package Pgtcl".

I think it has to be reopened for Fedora 9.

Kind regards,

Willem Herremans

Comment 5 Peter van Egdom 2008-06-18 20:39:31 UTC
Reopening bug as per comment #4. Changing version from "6" to "9".

Comment 6 Tom Lane 2008-06-20 02:00:16 UTC
So far as I can tell, this works just fine in F-9:

$ tclsh
% package require Pgtcl

I won't be able to do anything about this report unless you can identify why it's failing for you.

Comment 7 Oskar Stuffer 2008-06-20 06:47:57 UTC
I opened the bug for FC6 and have no access to a machine running Fedora 9 but
probably the problem was solved in this version.
I fixed the bug on my own computer (running FC6) adding the line

package ifneeded Pgtcl 1.5.2 [list load [file join $dir libpgtcl1.5.2.so]]

to the file /usr/lib/Pgtcl/pkgIndex.tcl

Comment 8 Willem Herremans 2008-06-20 07:48:01 UTC
It does not work on my Fedora 9. I will give you more details about the
configuration of my system.

Here is the list of tcl packages on my system:

[wim@fedora ~]$ yum list installed '*tcl*'
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Installed Packages
itcl.i386                                3.4-2.fc9              installed       
postgresql-pltcl.i386                    8.3.3-1.fc9            installed       
postgresql-tcl.i386                      8.3.3-1.fc9            installed       
tcl.i386                                 1:8.5.1-4.fc9          installed       
[wim@fedora ~]$ 

Location of package Pgtcl:


Configuration of tcl:

[wim@fedora ~]$ tclsh
% package require Pgtcl
can't find package Pgtcl
% puts $tcl_pkgPath     
/usr/lib/tcl8.5 /usr/share/tcl8.5 /usr/lib/tk8.5 
% puts $auto_path
/usr/share/tcl8.5 /usr/lib/tcl8.5 /usr/lib/tk8.5


Tcl cannot find package Pgtcl because Pgtcl is installed in /usr/lib and
tcl only looks for packages in /usr/lib/tcl8.5, /usr/share/tcl8.5 and

I can get it to work by moving the directory Pgtcl directory from /usr/lib/
to /usr/lib/tcl8.5 but that is only an ugly work around that could break
the Fedora package management system. 

I hope this helps you to handle this report.

Kind regards,

Willem Herremans

Comment 9 Tom Lane 2008-06-20 13:54:25 UTC
[ looks again... ]  Silly me, I was testing tcl 8.4 not 8.5.  Yeah, the change in auto_path is breaking it.
I already have a bug filed about that (bug #451750) but it would probably be best to move Pgtcl into
the tcl-specific subdirectory.
