Question How get wish file for run amsn???


Hello,

i'm new with linux and I have red hat 9 distribution and I want to install amsn-0.94-3mdk.i586.rpm but it send my a message where says that I need wish file, I read in internet that is a file that comes with tk aplication and it must be in usr/bin/wish path but it don't, so, i download tcl8.4.3-src.tar.gz and tk8.4.3-src.tar.gz archives and when I tried to install them and make ./configure it send me a report, it says: bash: ./configure: No such file or directory. Now, I don't know what to do, can somebody help me, please?

Hi, and welcome to LQ! :)

I'd suggest to install the tcl-rpms that came
with your RedHat CDs.


Cheers,
Tink

I think the file you are trying to install it's for mandrake and not for red hat. Maybe that's not the error but you could try to install the file that goes with your red hat, you can download it form http://amsn.sourceforge.net/modules.php?name=Downloads

Good luck

Smile Thanks for your help!!!

Your messages give me an idea and finally I find the solution, the only think i had do was write in the shell:

cd /home/user/src/tcl8.4.9/unix
mkdir solaris
cd solaris
/home/user/src/tcl8.4.9/unix/configure \
--enable-gcc --enable-shared \
--prefix=/usr/local
and later write make
make test
and finally make install
and witj that lines i hace installed tcl, after that i proceed to install tk, with the following lines:

cd /home/user/src/tk8.4.9/unix
mkdir solaris
cd solaris
/home/user/src/tk8.4.9/unix/configure \
--enable-gcc --enable-shared \
--with-tcl=/home/user/src/tcl8.4.9/unix/solaris \
--prefix=/usr/local
and same in tcl installation
make
make test and
make install
with this i had installed tk and theh i can found wish8.4 file and without problems i installed amsn, finally, because i was feeling out of this world. jajaja

and i want to recommend a internter page, http://www.tcl.tk/doc/howto/compile.html#unix, i found this url reading the reame file inside de tcl directory and all solutions are there. Thank you.
