Segmentation fault

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


How Reproducible:

Comment 1 Eido Inoue 2001-10-17 13:41:01 EDT
Ugh. This creeped back in.

itcl 3.2 does not include the itkwish and itclsh by default-- they've been
depreciated by the itcl author in favor of loading them with a "requires"
through the regular tclsh and wish shells. itkwish and itclsh are included with
3.2 for backwards compatibility with the earlier Red Hat.

Will fix-- but expect (in other words, migrate or plan to migrate to the
solution above if possible) itkwish and itclsh to go away when the next major
(non-dot) release of Red Hat is released and neither shell is included in itcl
3.2 anymore anyway.

The last comment is pretty old... has this been fixed yet, or should it be
marked wontfix?

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2002-10-26 22:37:54 EDT
Hmm, I believe I already have a fix for this, but I am actually leaning
towards dropping "itclsh" and "itkwish" in the next package release.
Would that hurt people?
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2002-10-28 23:03:16 EST
If they're deprecated upstream, I don't have much problem with removing them.
But if we include them they shouldn't segfault. :)
Comment 6 Mike McLean 2002-10-29 10:14:31 EST
Since this bug is also in 8.0, I am updating the version (was 7.3).

Comment 10 Jens Petersen 2002-12-10 02:58:54 EST
You should be able to use itcl and itk from tcl and wish
in package release 77 and later (perhaps even 76).
The source package is tcltk-8.3.5-77.

As indicated above the obsolete itclsh and itkwish aren't
being included any longer.
