Description Kris Urquhart 2002-08-03 10:18:20 EDT
Description of Problem:
In my experience, expect is used in many development situations, particularly
test targets in makefiles.
Comment 1 Kris Urquhart 2002-08-03 10:23:22 EDT
Unfortunately, the expect package includes expectk, which depends on tk, but
perhaps expectk could be pulled out into its own package?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2002-08-12 15:47:06 EDT
At this point, because of the Tk requirement, we probably won't do this.
Comment 3 Kris Urquhart 2002-08-29 12:47:41 EDT
Please find attached a patch to tcltk.spec that creates a separate expectk RPM,
so the expect RPM no longer depends on Tk or X.
