I couldn't load any of the Tk extensions in the system section of MyDSL. Other things downloaded fine, these didn't. They got checksum errors every time.
When I tried to download them from Ibiblio using Firefox instead of the MyDSL downloader, they downloaded fine but when I clicked on the checksum files, those weren't there. The checksums for some other files in the system section worked just fine.
But when I tried ibiblio ftp then the checksum files were there, and the checksums of the downloaded files were correct, and there was no obvious difference between the checksum files for Tk extensions and the other checksum files.
When I started this post I thought I knew why it didn't work. Surely these particular MD5 files were missing. But they aren't. Still, the temporary solution is to download and check them using ftp and not MyDSL or http.
Could the problem possibly be that the first 8 characters of all the names is the same? And the 9th character is either t or b. Maybe somehow the server doesn't notice that these are all unique? If it was an old Windows it might be seeing them as tcl_tk&1 etc. I dunno.
