Comment 1 Rick Richardson 2008-08-05 12:41:39 EDT

From Don Libes, the author of expect!

$ tkpasswd
try to click on any button.  Nothing!!

Worked fine on FC8...
Comment 2 Rick Richardson 2009-04-14 10:44:56 EDT
With Fedora 10:

$ expectk 
Application initialization failed: version conflict for package "Tcl": have 8.5.3, need exactly 8.5
% $ 

Also, tkpasswd et al is the same (try to click an any button) from Comment #1!!!
Comment 3 Rick Richardson 2009-06-23 05:31:57 EDT
There is a workround.  Change:

#!/usr/bin/expectk -f


#!/usr/bin/wish -f

package require Expect

This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '10'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2009-12-18 01:16:08 EST
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

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

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Comment 8 Vitezslav Crhonek 2010-03-10 04:47:10 EST
The issue is fixed in Rawhide.

Note that expectk is not supported by upstream any more... But the patch is discussed, so I decided to use it in Fedora.
