    Hi, I haveen trying to get tcl and tk working on my machine for several days with on success. I have a gateway with 2 dual core processors running CentOS 5.4

    I have been using rpm and yum to attempt to get this to work. I have read the man pages for both and can not get an install to complete.

    I hae completely uninstalled tcl using rpm -e tcl which appeared to work. I then used yum remove tcl which ran OK.

    Next I invoked rpm -e tcl which appeared to work.
    I then used rpm -i [--aid] tcl which told me that --aid was not a valid option, so I used rpm -i tcl which ran OK.

    I then ran rpmbuild which failed saying it could not find //tcl.
    I have also attempted to use yum exclusively to do this and have similar errors.

    When I use yum it downloads both the i386 as well as the x86_64 version.
    I don't know if I need both of these or only the x86_64 version.

    Can someone please help with this? Thank You.
