Hi Hubert,

AFAIK, the warning is just warning, but the error is, that
the two libraries for Tcl/Tk   libtcl.so.0 , libtk.so.0 seem to be missing
in your system.
Try to find out, which RPMs  provide these libraries and install them.
Or try rpm with --nodeps flag, but this may be little bit risky.

Subject: [R] unable to install redhat 8.0 rpm

I've just installed Redhat 8.0 + latest updates on a Intel PC and am
trying to install the R 1.6.1-2 rpm but get the following:

# rpm -i R-1.6.1-2.i386.rpm
warning: R-1.6.1-2.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 97d3544e
error: Failed dependencies:
         libtcl.so.0 is needed by R-1.6.1-2
         libtk.so.0 is needed by R-1.6.1-2

What am I missing?
