When launching tclsh, I am getting this error message:

couldn't create error file for command: no such file or directory

Can't find out what causes this to happen. How to fix this issue?

My host is running 64 bit CentOS.

From the comp.lang.tcl mailing list:

For stderr, exec creates a tempfile into which all the (putative) stderr-output goes, and which is read back afterwards.

I suggest following the rest of the info in that post. For example, do you have a .tclsh file? What is being run in it?

strace tclsh should give you enough info to determine where tcl is trying and failing to create a tempfile.
