                   Red Hat, Inc. Bug Fix Advisory

Synopsis:          New emacs packages are available for Red Hat Linux 7
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2000:091-02
Issue date:        2000-10-19
Updated on:        2000-10-19
Product:           Red Hat Linux
Keywords:          emacs emacs-nox python

1. Topic:

The emacs-nox package included in Red Hat Linux 7 needed the locale.alias file from XFree86. Also, the initialization of python mode has been fixed.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.0 - i386

3. Problem description:

The emacs-nox program tried to open /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias, which would fail if XFree86 wasn't installed. Also, python mode wasn't properly initalized in the site-start.el file.

4. Solution:

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filename]

where filename is the name of the RPM.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

18548 - national (accented) characters are not displayed
18642 - emacs-nox requires XFree86 !

6. RPMs required:

Red Hat Linux 7.0:
