Issue #8000 has been updated by Vit Ondruch.


Fedora has accepted Tcl/Tk 8.6 for F21 [1]. Is there any chance this will get resolved? Is there any repository with adjustments for 8.6 compatibility? Is there something I can help (having just limited knowledge)?

----------------------------------------
Using ruby 1.9.3p392 and Tk 8.6.0 on 64-bit Arch Linux, attempting to "require 'tk'" causes a segfault.

To reproduce:
    ruby -e "require 'tk'"

The crash log is in the attached file.

Notes:
- I've heard from a Gentoo user who is having the same problem.
- On 32-bit Arch Linux, there is no problem.
