Tk804 on 64bit Linux

on Jan 14, 2006 at 21:05 UTC ( #523237=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

monk2b has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have successfully built Tk on linux computers for years. I recently began to get 64 bit Linux desktop system in and the users of these systems require Tk-804.27 for the applications that they develope. I have not been able to get Tk built on a 64 bit system to date.

Does anyone know of a problem with building Tk on a 64 bit Intel pentium 4 system? Are there any obvious gotchas that anyone knows about that I should be aware of? Is there a 64 bit version of the Tk module?

I would appreciate any help that I get.

I got 99 problems, but coding ain't one.

    Hi Monk2b,

    You're really asking the wrong crowd for building TK. You're best bet is to go to the TCL Developer Site and/or to the website of your Linux distribution.

    Unless you're talking about the Perl/TK module??

    hope this helps :)

    It would help if you gave the error messages you are getting. Also going to and searching for "Perl Tk 64 bit compiling" gives some results from recent discussions on the newsgroup about 64 bit on different platforms.

    You also can get a 64 bit linux distribution which comes with pre-built Tk binaries, and get their source rpms, and see what patches they've applied to the Tk source, and the compilers. OpenSuSE usually does a good job of making sure everything works.
