Hi Nick,

I dunno. I assume that you're familiar enough with Apple's installer to
know all the basic troubleshooting questions I would throw at you. Email
privately about your setup, what you last installed, and whether you're
admin on the machine, and I'll try to work it out.

Oh, basic thing: have you upgraded to 10.2? The new installer format is
apparently not compatible with 10.1 (and the Tcl/Tk install won't run
correctly, anyway).


I believe Nick Fells said this around Fri, 13 Dec 2002:
