[CentOS] The problem of Python configuration for Tk

I have another binary software package installed in my CentOS 6.7 which contains the libtk8.6.so file. This softwork works well. Does that mean that this libtk8.5.so library can also work in Centos 6? So maybe set this libtk8.5.so shared in my system can solve the problem. But how?

# yum provides \*/libtk8.\*
Loaded plugins: .....
1:tk-8.5.7-5.el6.x86_64 : The graphical toolkit for the Tcl scripting 
Repo        : base
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/lib64/libtk8.5.so

it appeaqrs CentOS 6 only has tk-8.5, not 8.6, so this pymol thing 
you've installed must be built for some other distribution or version.
