problems compiling uudeview code with tcl7.5/tk4.1

Post by Maan M. Hamz » Fri, 27 Sep 1996 04:00:00



I have a small question and I hope someone can help me with this!
I tried to compile the program uudeview (for encoding/decoding).
It needs tcl/tk.  I have:
tcl.h and tk.h in /usr/include, and I have
libtcl.so.1.7.5, libtclx.so.1.7.5, libtk.so.1.4.1, libtkx.so.1.4.1,
tclx7.5.a, and tkx4.1.a
in /usr/lib, in addition I have tclsh in /usr/bin along with wish4.1.
SO, I have the whole binary distribution.
the configuration script that comes with uudeview can find tcl.h but
**can not**
find tk.h.
It can not find the libraries, and it looks for libtk*.a and libtcl*.a.
I have compiled other programs before, and they seem to find the tcl/tk
necessary files.
But uudeview is "misbehaving."
Does anyone have any idea why would uudeview report that TK is not
installed.
This is at a time when most of the programs I have run using tcl/tk.
I have Linux 2.0.0 by the way.  And the whole tcl7.5/tk4.1 was installed
along with
the tclx/tkx extensions by the slackware distribution.
Any help or clue is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Maan

 There was a bug in UUDeview 0.5.5's configuration script. When checking
for tk.h, I forgot to pass the $x_includes to the preprocessor. Hence it
could find tk.h, but failed because it could not resolve X11/Xlib.h. This
has been fixed in version 0.5.7.

 Have fun,

1. Compiling tcl7.4 and tk4.0 under LInux for ELF

Hello:

I'm compiling tcl 7.4 and tk 4.0 on Linux 1.3.59 here. They compile
just fine, yet when I try to compile the eggdrop 0.9r program it fails
with the following:

Which I'm told means that a library is compiled for a.out rather than
ELF. How can I get tcl.tk to compile for ELF and not a.out?? I need to
get an answer for this one, since we use eggdrop to maintain channels
on our irc server irc 2.8.21 - actually we also need to get the irc
server (ircd) compiled for linux as well...

Thanks,
