Description Mark McClelland 2002-07-09 04:18:41 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020605

Description of problem:
When "make xconfig" is run from within the kernel source directory, it will exit
with an error due to the "wish" command not being available. This command is
part of the tk package, but "rpm -q --requires kernel-source" does not list tk
as a requirement. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
On a system that does not have the tk package installed:
1. su -
2. cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-5.58
3. make xconfig

Actual Results:
 Relevant make output:
  wish -f scripts/kconfig.tk
  make: wish: Command not found
  make: *** [xconfig] Error 127

Expected Results:  The xconfig GUI should have appeared

Additional info:

NOTE: make xconfig works after the tk package from Disc 3 is installed.
