    aMSN will not compile

    my problem is that i download the amsn-0.95.tar.gz file.
    i then extract it using tar -xvzf amsn-0.95.tar.gz
    i then change directory into the newly created amsn-0.98 directory and run ./configure to make the make file. and this is what happens

    checking for gcc... gcc
    checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
    checking whether the C compiler works... yes
    checking whether we are cross compiling... no
    checking for suffix of executables...
    checking for suffix of object files... o
    checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
    checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
    checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
    checking for g++... g++
    checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... yes
    checking whether g++ accepts -g... yes
    checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -E
    checking for prefix by checking for wish... /usr/bin/wish
    checking tcl build dir... configure: error: Unable to find Tcl directory or Tcl package is not tcl-dev
    but tcl and tk is installed in /usr/share/tcl8.4 and tk is installed in /usr/share/tk8.4
    so i don't know what to do :S
    any help would be greatly appriciated.

    oh and i am running fedora core 5 if that makes a difference

    Make sure you have tcl-dev installed, not just tcl.

    Well, you could specify manualy the directory in which "tcl8.4-dev" is installed:

    ./configure --with-tcl=/usr/share/tcl8.4/
    Have you read the aMSN wiki and the installation instructions?
