There's a problem in the powerpc port of the tkstep8.0_8.0p2-3.4
package: While libtkstep8.0.so from the i386 package is linked with
all of its dependent libraries, the library from the powerpc
package lacks these dependencies.
This prevents many applications from running, for example:
rdreyer:~$ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libtkstep8.0.so.1 fetchmailconf
Traceback (innermost last):
File "<string>", line 1, in ?
File "/usr/lib/python1.5/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 8, in ?
import _tkinter # If this fails your Python may not be configured for Tk
ImportError: /usr/lib/tkstep/libtk8.0.so.1: undefined symbol: XpmCreateXpmImageFromBuffer
/usr/X11R6/lib/postilion/postilion.exec: error in loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/tkstep/libtk8.0.so.1: undefined symbol: XpmReadFileToXpmImage
I'm using Debian 2.2 on a PowerPac, kernel:
Linux bourbaki 2.2.14 #1 Wed Jan 26 00:43:17 PST 2000 ppc unknown
and libc 2.1.2-5.
