I am using RedHat 7.2, but with software compiled from source:
python 2.2 (doesn't look like I went and got 2.2.1, so hmmm).
As I suggested, it looks like it's some kind of configure-time glitch.
I just didn't track it thru the whole process.
For your edification, here's my python session, after I went and
removed the symlink:
>>> import Tix
>>> root = Tix.Tk()
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.2/lib-tk/Tix.py", line 213, in __init__
self.tk.eval('package require Tix')
TclError: couldn't load file "/usr/lib/libtix": /usr/lib/libtix:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
It is a different error message, after all. :)
