I have just uppgraded my linux installation to SuSE 8.1. 

I have also installed GRASS (GIS) 5.0. This went well; and the basic tcl/tk 
interfrace (tcltkgrass) startet. When I try to run NVIZ, the 3d vizualation 
tool, it fails. A note here; I have created the usual symlinks in libtk/tcl; 
i.e ln -sf /usr/lib/libtcl8.4.so /usr/lib/libtcl.so.0 and 
/usr/lib/libtk8.4.so /usr/lib/libtk.so.0.

Mesa is installed; and gears is running.

Below is the output from the NVIZ program (run from tcltkgrass). Does anyone 
have any idea why it crashes?
