I'd very much appreciate your help if you can advise me how to compile 
_tkinter in Fedora 4. I installed Fedora core 4 in my machine recently, 
but struggled to get Tk working for me.

The Tcl/Tk is working O.K. because I can run demo programs from 
/usr/share/tk8.4/demos. The error is caused by missing _tkinter library, 
and clearly there is no Tkinter module to be imported.

I managed to download and recompile a  new version of  Python (2.4.3), 
then run "make test".  The error message says:

test_tcl skipped -- No module named _tkinter
1 skip unexpected on linux2:
