Compile Tk from source: make error


Hello

I have a hard time trying to compile tk from source

I am using fedora core 4 and trying to run amsn. It failed dependency tk=>8.3 and need wish. A check to fc4 rpm list only give tcl-8.4 but no tk installed. I decided I should install tk myself, but make gave me this error:
Code:
[root@vlan451-080-095 unix]# make
...(a bunch of stuff flying by)
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -ltclstub8.4
collect2: ld return 1
make: *** [libtk8.4.so] error 1
Does it mean it cannot find tcl stuff in ld.so file? Any suggestions? 10K appriciation to any help.

P.S I used linux for almost 2 years. But until a while ago, i never had any success with make && make install :-D


./configure gave me these if you are interested

Do you have libtclstub8.4.a in /usr/lib?
Code:
find /usr -name libtclstub8.4.a

You might have only the runtime Tcl libs. Maybe you need to install Tcl from source, or maybe there is a separate Tcl-dev rpm.

this is an easy one
you have to install tcl before you can install tk

compiling tcl/tk is not for the unitiated
use these instructions

Problem solved, I have to uninstall fedora core tcl rpm first, then compile tcl from source, then compile tk.

Thanks for the posts
