Description Don Lewis 2004-08-11 23:20:25 UTC
Different versions of the tcl ports conflict with each other because they all install their man pages in the same location. The same is true of the tk ports. Fix: Either a CONFLICTS statement should be added to the Makefiles or the man pages should be installed in tcl/tk version-specific directories.

Diffrent tcl/tk versions install the same manpage at the same locaion. This is intended, The common manpages have only minor differences. If you deinstall the ports in any order, all manpages are removed. > Either a CONFLICTS statement should be added to the Makefiles or > the man pages should be installed in tcl/tk version-specific > directories. both will be harmfull. - CONFLICTS will keep useres from ruinning more then one version. diffrent versions are needed for Applications cause tcl/tk API changed so much. - moving man in a diffrent path will obsolete tutorials and handbooks There might be even application that fails. I would like to hear more arguments why the current state gives problems. kind regards Dirk - Dirk Meyer, Im Grund 4, 34317 Habichtswald, Germany - [firstname.lastname@example.org],[email@example.com],[dinoex@FreeBSD.org]

When you temporarily need an older version, but deinstall it after use (e.g. testing), you are left without man pages. Perhaps a seperate tcl-man port which all tcl ports can depend upon will help? -Oliver
