tcl installation problem


halo... i am using fedora core 4,2.6.11-1.1369.stk16

Because I did installed a graphviz-2.8 and it need tcl8.3 to run it succesfully in order to support mobile mesh protocol. I did realised my distro got tcl8.4 by default but i did read a link as below:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=234786

The person said that :" Just having the package installed is not enough when compiling you need to have the developement files installed as well. "


I am trying to install tcl8.3.4 into my distro and i did found a link for installation as below:
http://www.tcl.tk/doc/howto/compile.html

The installation step is :
1) cd unix
2) ./configure
3)make
4)make test
5)make install


when i come to step "make", i did found an error message shown:

[root@localhost unix]# make

I did found out that my distro has tcl8.4 by default as shown:

[root@localhost unix]# whereis tcl
tcl: /usr/bin/tcl /usr/lib/tcl8.4 /usr/local/lib/tcl8.3 /usr/share/tcl8.4


Did anyone know why got error message when trying to install??

I would recommend sticking with the 8.4 that came with your distro,
and just install dev-packages from the distro as well; I'm fairly
certain that Tcl 8.4 is downward compatible. Installing stuff from
source (without using src-rpms) in an rpm based distro is always a
bad idea - specially with tools that ARE available as RPM.


Cheers,
Tink

halo... May i know is that you mean by using tcl-8.4 can support graphviz-2.8 as well ??? I just scare that sometimes it need the certain version of tcl since mobile mesh is an old software.


may i know i have to install tcl-devel 8.4 by using yum :
"yum install tcl-devel-8.4" ??
