DS9 on Fedora 26

asked 2017-11-16 04:56:10 -0500

Hello everyone!

I have tried installing DS9 on Fedora 26 and ran into some trouble with TCL. After installing the DS9 rpm and running DS9 I get the following error message:

Application initialization failed: Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following directories: 
    ./zvfsmntpt/tcl8.5 /home/abuild/rpmbuild/BUILD/saods9/lib/tcl8.5 /usr/lib/tcl8.5 /lib/tcl8.5 /usr/library /library /tcl8.5.9/library /tcl8.5.9/library

This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly.

Error in startup script: couldn't read file "./zvfsmntpt/src/ds9.tcl": no such file or directory

Searching for init.tcl yields nothing really interesting:

[root@localhost ~]# find init.tcl
find: ‘init.tcl’: No such file or directory

It almost seems like tcl is not installed, although when I run [CODE]dnf install tcl[/CODE] I get the following:

Package tcl-1:8.6.6-2.fc26.x86_64 is already installed, skipping.
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.

Which seems to indicate I already have tcl installed. Can someone help me out? All help is very much appreciated, thank you!

DS9 is compiled for CentOS 7 which ships with tcl-8.5 when f26 ships with tcl-8.6
