Trouble with RPM, tk and tcl.

Trouble with RPM, tk and tcl.

Post by John Terill » Wed, 12 Mar 1997 04:00:00

I want to upgrade from tk-4.1-3 to tk 4.2-1 and tcl-7.5-3 to tcl-7.6-1.

I can't upgrade using rpm because tk-4.2-1.i386.rpm  lists tcl-7.6 as a
dependency and I can't install tcl7-6 because I get failed dependencies: is needed by python-1.3-11 is needed by tclx-7.5.2-3 is needed by tk-4.1-3    

even though these libraries are installed and working.  I'm frightened to
do rpm -i --force.  

So, has anyone else had similar problems (and resolved them?)




1. RPM/Tcl-Tk Question: Right Upgrade Procedure?

I think I may be screwing up somehow as I attempt to upgrade the
Tk-Tcl packages in RH 4.2 to the latest versions (8.1-1, I think).

Using Glint, should I be doing an INSTALL, or an UPGRADE?  Or does it
matter?  I used INSTALL and ended up with what appears to be both the
new and the old packages installed. This manifests itself when I
attempt to start FileRunner, which fails to run and reports problems
executing the initialization script.

Anyone else run into this? Suggestions?
