Good news and bad news. First, I compiled tcl/tk and tkWWW on
one of our SunOS 4.1.3 machines, came back to my Solaris 2.2
machine with the same home file system structure, and launched
tkWWW. Worked fine with the standard binary compatability
package.

One snag I had with tkWWW though. I am bringing up a web server
using ncsa_httpd beta release 3. When accessing it from Mosaic,
it works fine, but when accessing it from tkWWW, I get a bad
file request.

Any ideas??

NCSA httpd 0.3 isn't smart enough to interpret the messages tkWWW
(or a handful of other browsers -- all of them, within the next few
months) sends it when requesting documents. NCSA httpd 0.4, which has
been out for a while, doesn't have this problem; upgrading should be
painless (ftp.ncsa.uiuc.edu in /Mosaic/ncsa_httpd).

Cheers,
Marc
