The reason is that the currently provided precompiled tcl/tk 8.0 Linux
libraries might cause problems on a few Linux distributions
(SuSe 5.3 is known for that).
The solution is:
- either to compile the source code of tcl/tk 8.0 (two commands only,
instructions and source code are on TclTkGRASS page)
- get the binaries for *your* Linux distribution (SuSe users may use
the tcl_new.rpm and tk_new.rpm from their SuSe-Linux-CDROM).
I hope that this problem will disappear in near future.
The precompiled tcl/tk library for Linux were compiled on
Sorry for such problems! TclTkGRASS itself can't create such problems
because it is tcl-script based and does not contain any binaries
