Description of problem:

  File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/lib-tk/", line 1636, in __init__ = _tkinter.create(screenName, baseName, className, interactive,
wantobjects, useTk, sync, use)

This seems to be a duplicate of bug #453239

Comment 2 Kevin J. Cummings 2008-06-29 02:38:10 UTC
Nope.  Different problems with the same tcl RPM.  453239 claims that tk is not
compatible with this release.  This bug claims that tcl is not compatible with
itself.   B^)

Comment 3 Kevin J. Cummings 2008-06-29 06:05:42 UTC
I just installed tcl.x86_64 1:8.5.2-2.fc9 and it seems to fix this problem.

However, it was a pain to install because bug #453239 still has not been resolved.
