in thread Problem install Tk on CentOs using Perl 5.26

Hi, don't worry if the Tk tests fail. Install it and it works fine. There is some reason why the tests fail, IIRC, but it dosn't affect the module. By the way, in my recipe, did I include make test? :-)

So, wipe out your old source, unpack a fresh tgz download, then "perl Makefile.PL", "make", "make install" ( as root)

    May be. Or just not. Who knows. The whole Perl Machinery relies on tests and that is one major reason what makes it so strong. I don't know when i build TK successfully without skipping the tests or force. Perhaps in the days when i used Linux @home and this is a long time ago. And to be honest: I didn't use TK very much.

    Vision - me at a meeting. Boss: "Karl, you builded that crashing TK app. Didn't you run the tests?" Me: "No, some fellow monk told me to skip them because they fail anyway" Boss: "Karl, you're fired!"

    Best regards, Karl

      Yeah, you are right, but maybe the module's author is pressed for time, and fixing real bugs is more important than fixing some artificially devised tests. I'm sure Slaven would love a volunteer to help him with the module. The Tk code runs very well.

        Thank you zentara.
