I was mildly surprised to see BLT delivered with openSUSE11.1. BLT has major source compatibility issues with Tcl 8.5. So, I am guessing that the SUSE team did some sort of a fix. Is there any documentation on this fix? There were at least two ways to make this work: hack into the BLT code, or use a stubs library. Where can I find which they did? There is nothing in /usr/share/docs/blt about this.

Of course, it is only academic as BLT (the shells and demos at least) seem not to work. They complain:

Application initialization failed: version conflict for package "Tcl": have 8.5.5, need exactly 8.5

The fact that they may have worked with 8.5 at one time is a great sign. But as 8.5.5 is what comes with openSUSE11.1, they need to work with that. I think this requirement is compiled in the library, not in the blt pkgIndex.tcl file.

Anyone else on this list using BLT?

It is RSofT and there is always something under construction.

Not impossible, but very unlikely.
