hi all, 

can someone help me on installing an eggdrop and tell me how to fix this problem? cause i think its an eggdrop problem, i was trying to install eggdrop1.6.15, Redhat Linux 9.0, kernel 2.4.26, i installed tcl8.3.5 (./configure --enable-gcc --enable-thread --enable-shared then make, make test and make install)

after that
when i was configuring the eggdrop1.6.15 it found the tcl libraries

can someone tell me how to fix this problem?

You can now compile the bot, using "make".

and then while doing the "make" i got this problem

make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/jubair/eggdrop1.6.15/src/compat'
---------- Yeah! that's the compiling, now the linking! ----------
