Description Anthony Horton 2008-12-17 13:46:56 UTC
Description of problem:

I installed ds9 and funtools from the Fedora 10 yum repositories but when I try to run ds9 it fails with the message: 

Error in startup script: can't find package base64 while executing "package require base64"

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

ds9.i386 0:5.4-1.fc10

How reproducible:

Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ds9 from the Fedora 10 repositories
2. Try to run it.
  
Actual results:

An error about a missing package base64.

Expected results:

ds9 starting.

Additional info:

It looks like the startupp script for the i386 ds9 package is looking for a component of the x86_64 version.

Transcript of the installation and error message attached.

Comment 1 Sergio Pascual 2008-12-17 13:56:02 UTC
The missing package is tcllib. Somehow I missed it in the dependencies. As a workaround please do 
# yum install tcllib 
after installing ds9
