I am trying to install amsn from an rpm and I get the following error message.

[ Downloads]# rpm -Uhv amsn-0.90-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        /usr/bin/wish is needed by amsn-0.90-1

cd msn
or if this doesn't work, try
wish amsn
If wish command doesn't exist, then you don't have tcl/tk correctly installed.
If "wish amsn" works, but "./amsn" doesn't, edit 'amsn' file and set the
correct path to 'wish' in the first line. By default it's set to:
