Build Error: Tk 804.034 for Perl 5.28.1 on Linux

Looking for help with this package that is failing to build in my project.

Hi @Giles,

Thanks for the note! It looks like you tried a range of versions without luck. I made some similar adjustments to versions without success.

Hey @ActiveState-Support - could you take a look at this? It’s definitely beyond my ken.


Hi Zak,

I’ve taken Tk out for now - but it would be good if ActiveState fixed it as I would like to use it later.

Are we able to see the build logs - that might be useful in identifying the problem?


Hi @Giles,

I’ll ask the dev team to take a look at the Tk issue.

We have build logs per package (like the attached screenshot) for Perl 5.32 builds, but not for earlier versions.


Looks like the problem is with the Linux version. We have a working version of Tk for the older kernel, and if you set Tk to auto, and pick the 2.12 kernel instead of the 2.17, Tk will build.

Unfortunately, then it breaks for DBD-MySQL which is only working for 2.17 kernels.
