Installation/Configuration question

Posts: n/a
I downloaded the pre-compiled Python packages from,
installed them on my Solaris 8 box. I am trying to do a simple import
of Tkinter. Since I installed Tcl 8.4 as well as Tk 8.4, and set my
environment variables, I should be in reasonable good shape. However,
I get the following errors:

(this is what is in my profile:

chantilly> . /.profile
chantilly> python
Python 2.3.3 (#2, Mar 10 2004, 06:28:2
[GCC 3.3.2] on sunos5
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from Tkinter import *

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.3/lib-tk/", line 38, in ?
import _tkinter # If this fails your Python may not be configured
for Tk
ImportError: python: fatal: relocation error: file
/usr/local/lib/ symbol __eprintf: referenced symbol not

It would appear that I am not set up correctly, yet I don't know where
I went wrong. Can someone help me?
