Description Kevin J. Cummings 2008-06-28 02:48:03 EDT
Description of problem:
The new tcl just released (1:8.5.2-1.fc9) has the following line in
/usr/share/tcl8.5/init.tcl on line 20:

package require -exact Tcl 8.5.1

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. I ran pysol (from PySolFC
Actual results:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/PySolFC/pysol.py", line 26, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pysollib/init.py", line 118, in init
    root = Tkinter.Tk(className=settings.TITLE)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 1636, in __init__
    self.tk = _tkinter.create(screenName, baseName, className, interactive,
wantobjects, useTk, sync, use)
_tkinter.TclError: Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following directories: 
    /usr/share/tcl8.5 /usr/lib/tcl8.5 /lib/tcl8.5 /usr/library /library
/tcl8.5.2/library /tcl8.5.2/library

/usr/share/tcl8.5/init.tcl: version conflict for package "Tcl": have 8.5.2, need
exactly 8.5.1
version conflict for package "Tcl": have 8.5.2, need exactly 8.5.1
    while executing

    (file "/usr/share/tcl8.5/init.tcl" line 20)
    invoked from within
"source /usr/share/tcl8.5/init.tcl"
    ("uplevel" body line 1)
    invoked from within
"uplevel #0 [list source $tclfile]"

Expected results:
I expected pysol to run correctly

This seems to be a duplicate of bug #453239
Comment 2 Kevin J. Cummings 2008-06-28 22:38:10 EDT
Nope.  Different problems with the same tcl RPM.  453239 claims that tk is not
compatible with this release.  This bug claims that tcl is not compatible with
itself.   B^)
Comment 3 Kevin J. Cummings 2008-06-29 02:05:42 EDT
I just installed tcl.x86_64 1:8.5.2-2.fc9 and it seems to fix this problem.

However, it was a pain to install because bug #453239 still has not been resolved.
