[R] tcltk error on Linux

I am having trouble getting tcltk package to load on openSuse 10.2 
running R-devel. I have specifically put my /usr/share/tcl directory in 
my PATH, but R doesn't seem to see it. I also have installed tk on my 
system. Any ideas on what the problem is?

Also, note that I have some warning messages on starting up R, not sure 
what they mean or if they are pertinent.

Thanks, Mark
