It appears you have only unpacked the Thirdparty sources but you have not yet built them for your machine. To build, run the 'install' script in your /tmp/scirun/Thirdparty_install.1.22.0 directory and follow the directions. For example, if is a 32 bit machine:

> cd /tmp/scirun/Thirdparty_install.1.22.0
> ./install /tmp/scirun/Thirdparty 32 2

... wait awhile ...

The last thing the Thirdparty install script will print out is the --with-thirdparty= option you need to use to configure SCIRun.

Hope this helps,

I am trying to compile and run SCIrun. When I triey config with
the following command:
   src/configure  --with-thirdparty=/tmp/scirun/Thirdparty_install.1.22.0

I got the following error:
configure: error: Test for required TCL failed.
    To see the failed compile information, look in config.log,
    search for TCL. Please install the relevant libraries
     or specify the correct paths and try to configure again.

I am running on Tcl/Tk have been installed. Is there
any other package I shall install?

Thanks a lot!
