Hi everyone,

I have been trying to find out what's the main reason behind this
problem for sometime, however it seems as though I am not getting
anywhere near to the success, and hope that some of you may know the way
to deal with this problem, many thanks!

I am running SunOS on my system. The problem is that whatever I do in
PIL or in python, they all works fine, except when I tried to use the
PhotoImage class in the ImageTk module (in here I am trying to turn an
image that has been opened by the Image module and did some enhancement
as well into something that is compatible with the Tkinter in python (so
that I could display onto a Canvas)).

Unfortunately, the only two results I have got so far is a) Bus Error
and b) segmentation fault ... as I know 'Bus Error' appears on the Sun's
system can mean a lot of things, but can anyone help me out?

In my system, I am using tcl/tk 8.0 or higher, so I imagine that should
be ok for both packages? I have updated my X windows patch (from the
web site) to the most stable one already, but I still have this problem
again and again ... I am just wondering would that still be my X
