Tcl sqlite package?

Post by xcott » 2020/01/10 18:34:46

Hello and apologies in advance for my newbie confusion:

I used yum to install tcl and tcl-devel, and sqlite, sqlite-devel and sqlite-libs.

However, I can't find the package "sqlite-tcl", that provides that sqlite package for Tcl. Am I missing something obvious?

If I may provide an entertaining follow-up: I found A way to install this, but it breaks yum!

I downloaded and rebuilt the EL7 source RPM for sqlite-tcl 3.7, but it requires an older version of Sqlite (3.7) and an older version of Tcl (8.5). Neither of those are a big deal for my purposes, but yum apparently uses the sqlite libs, and needs a later version than 3.7.

So I downloaded and rebuilt the EL7 source RPMs for sqlite and Tcl8.5, and then installed them with --allowerasing on sqlite3.7. This gives me Tcl 8.5, sqlite, and a working sqlite3 package in Tcl, but the yum command fails. RPM still works.

For this reason I could easily bring things back to normal, by using rpm to tear down my setup and then using rpm -U to resurrect the 3.26 version of sqlite-libs. Please note that at no time did I remove sqlite-libs---I only ever overwrote one version with another---and I have no idea how borked everything would get if I took it away entirely.

Obviously this is not ideal. I don't want to wreck the installer and other things in order to use my environment, and then tear down my environment in order to bring things back.

sqlite-tcl is now built from the sqlite source rpm:

It's not published because it's not part of RHEL 8:
