I just compiled guile-gtk-0.14 with gtk 1.0.6 and guile 1.3, and had no problem at all with building & installing guile-gtk (Red Hat Linux 5.2). The problems start when you try to run the examples...Most of them don't work at all, some of them manage to display something before crashing, and only "HelloWorld" seems to be OK! This is probably the wrong mailing list to complain about these problems (a GTK mailing list would be more apropiate), but I am wondering if using GTK with Guile is the right thing to do? GTK is a nice toolkit and if I where to write a C program that required any kind of GUI widgets it probably would be my first choice. But it doesn't seem to be a good match for Guile. I would prefer to see toolkit based on tk (from tcl/tk). From what I managed to find out it seems that sometime ago Guile did support tk and then it didn't anymore. Anybody knows what is the status on this? -- Gerardo Horvilleur email@example.com
