Description Andreas Proteus 2013-01-18 15:45:45 UTC
Created attachment 336056 [details]
emerge --info

Steps to reproduce:

* emerge =dev-tcltk/itcl-4.0.0-r2 
* emerge =dev-util/insight-6.8.1 . 
  To do this you may need to look at bug #451368 and  bug #441036.

* Run Insight. It fails with the error message:
  "Error: can't find package Itcl 3.3"

* emerge =dev-tcltk/itcl-3.4.1
Insight then runs normally.

I just installed insight-6.8.1-r1 and have the same problem with itcl-4.0.3.
Comment 2 Ralf Ramsauer 2015-09-02 14:30:33 UTC
Confirmed, same here.
Comment 3 Kobboi 2015-11-08 14:17:53 UTC
And here

Just got bitten by this myself.  dev-tcltk/itcl-4.0.3, dev-tcltk/itk-4.0.1, dev-util/insight-6.8.1-r1, trying to use it to debug an input problem with media-sound/grip-3.3.1.  Cannot back out to dev-tcltk/itcl-3.4.1 because of multiple packages depending on >=dev-lang/tcl-8.6.

(Yes, I still use Grip even though Gentoo has dropped the ebuild.  Nothing even half as good, let alone compatible with its database, has come along to replace it.)

CCing treecleaners as we won't block forever tcltk-8.6 stabilization for this (also, looking to the huge amount of patching this needs as I see in Fedora, this needs a dedicated maintainer)
