Are you really running 2.1.0 (which is an unreleased development
version) or are you running 2.0.1, which is the present released

What does the banner indicate when you first start R?

How did you install R (compile from source or use one of Martyn's RPMS)?

Also, please run the following command from a console and post the
results back:

rpm -q tcl tcl-devel

As is indicated in the above post you referenced, this suggests that you
compiled from source, but R did not locate the requisite files during
the configure process.

Run the following command in a console and post the results back:

locate tcltk.so
