wiring question

i added a flourescent light to a single pole outside light circuit. we have'nt installed flourecent bulbs yet, we turned the switch on to see if the circuit was complete and noticed the outside light bulb barely glows.
what could be the problem?

If I understand correctly, you added a fluorescent fixture to an existing incandescent fixture? If this is the case, you may have wired the new fixture in series with the existing one. Can you confirm how you wired the new fixture (where you connected each of the wires)?

That would be my guess also, that you wired the light in series with the existing light.
