Hi,

I didn't try automatic dependency resolution instead installed each library one by one. It seems that tcl is installed and the libtcl8.4.so exists.

Below is the info from the system:
> rpm -q tcl

tcl-8.4.15-22
> whereis libtcl8.4.so

libtcl8.4: /usr/lib64/libtcl8.4.so
> rpm -i R-base-2.7.1-6.1.i586.rpm

error: Failed dependencies:

        libtcl8.4.so is needed by R-base-2.7.1-6.1.i586

Am I missing something?

Thanks,
Ezhil
