building python 2.4.1

P: n/a
Hi !
I am trying to build python 2.4.1 from source on a Linux system.
Everything seems fine, but tkinter seems not to work.
The file _tkinter.pyd is missing.
How can tell configure to build all necessary components ?

Thanks
Andreas

It looks to like Tcl/Tk is not installed on your system. You will need
to have them installed for Tkinter to build.

Actually, tk and tcl 8.4 are installed.
However, there are no tcl.h and tk.h header files. I haven't ssen those
files since Tcl/Tk8.0

Hmmm, where they a pre/package install? I'm sure I had to build Tcl/Tk
from source on my Debian install.

You may also need to install the development packages (tk-devel and
tcl-devel on Suse)
