Just to clarify that a bit....
I'm using Bass 1.26 (same result with 1.24), gcc/g++ 2.7.2, tcl7.4 and tk4.0.
bass, grace, matrixOut and bass.conf compile ok. TKbass doesn't.

Can anyone suggest:
what the problem is? (I'd *guess* it's tcl/tk)
- how to fix it?
- somewhere I can get a precompiled binary of TKbass for Linux?
- a more appropriate group to post to if this is the wrong place?


The error messages are as follows. (I apologise for the length)
