	You need to provide more details.  If you compiled it
--with-contrib and didnt include the libVTKContrib.so, you know what
is wrong.  This is because the vtk tcl interpreter itself would have
been compiled with Contrib support.  OTOH if you have done something
else you need to let us know what you did.

	Instead of going thru the hassle of compiling it yourself why
dont you get the nightly rpms from


	Maybe these rpms need more publicity at the vtk website?  Why
do most people prefer to go thru a massive and potentially problematic
compilation when precompiled rpms/debs are available?
