Re: emacs install problem


Here's something else funky:

% type -a emacs
bash: type: emacs: not found

% ll /etc/setup/emacs.lst.gz
-rwxrwxrwx 1 Administ None 20 Aug 11 06:40 /etc/setup/emacs.lst.gz*

% zcat /etc/setup/emacs.lst.gz

% zcat /etc/setup/emacs.lst.gz |wc
0 0 0

% find /usr /lib -iname '*emacs*'

% ll {}/release/emacs/emacs-21.2-1.tar.bz2
-rwxrwxrwx 1 Administ None 11404615 Aug 10 21:41 {}/release/emacs/emacs-21.2-1.tar.bz2*

This might be a relevant clue, given the accidental clash or duplication of the "ctags" and "etags" tools between the 21.2-1 Emacs package and the "ctags" package:

% ll /bin/?tags.exe
-rwxrwxrwx 1 Administ None 94208 Dec 26 2001 /bin/ctags.exe*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 Administ None 20 Dec 26 2001 /bin/etags.exe -> ctags.exe*

% zcat /etc/setup/ctags.lst.gz

Something doesn't seem to add up here. I recall no error indication during download or install of the emacs-21.2-1 package.

Does anyone have an explanation? I'm downloading the 21.2-3 package now, but since I'm getting teTeX packages, incl. source (via modem, no less), it'll be a while before I can install and test it.

I'm running Win2K Pro, SP2 (SP3 will be going in shortly).

Yes. I got this with 21.2-1 and I'm still getting it with the recently
available 21.2-3. Hard to tell what's going on during setup, but it doesn't
seem to me that emacs gets installed at all. The progress bar flashes for an
instant and then it's zooming on to the next thing. Most 'large' components
such as this one take a measurable time ... dunno. Totally perplexed.
I wonder if the lack of a .exe suffix on the emacs binary is causing this?

What OS are y'all running?
