Subject: tclx8.4: Unable to load Tclx in Tcl 8.5
Date: Sun, 26 Jul 2009 14:49:28 +0400
Package: tclx8.4
Version: 8.4.0-2
Severity: important
Tags: patch

Bug #442469 has been incorrectly fixed.

In /usr/lib/tclx8.4/pkgIndex.tcl line

if {[package vcompare [info tclversion] 8.4] != 0} return

should be replaced with

if {[package vcompare [info tclversion] 8.4] < 0} return

Otherwise it will be impossible to load Tclx package in Tcl8.5
