Help me in installing gitk?

I have GIT installed with git-svn package too on fedora 10.
Can anyone get me right package for gitk?Git by default doesnt come under default.
I have been trying installing gitk but all it says:
tk > = 0.8 and after that it throws lots of dependency issue during gitk package being attempted to install.

"GITK - Generalized Interface Toolkit"

And I don't think it has anything to do with 'git' ? ?
( By the way, git is two things : 1) git, the old
"Gnu Interactive Tool" and 2) git = git-core > >
> "Git is an open source, distributed version control system" )

# yum search git
git.i386 : Core git tools
git-all.i386 : Meta-package to pull in all git tools
git-arch.i386 : Git tools for importing Arch repositories
git-cvs.i386 : Git tools for importing CVS repositories
git-daemon.i386 : Git protocol dæmon
git-email.i386 : Git tools for sending email
git-gui.i386 : Git GUI tool
git-svn.i386 : Git tools for importing Subversion repositories
gitk.i386 : Git revision tree visualiser
gitweb.i386 : Simple web interface to git repositories
EDIT ... I just tried it on Fedora 10 : # yum install gitk
and got this installed ...

May be you should add the '' repos ?
> > 'RPM Fusion free for Fedora 8, 9 or 10'
and 'RPM Fusion nonfree for Fedora 8, 9 or 10'

( Though all packages looks like Fedora org. packages ? )
