Hey all --
I've had quite a bit of trouble getting 21.5.29 working in our
environment. After comparing paths.h between 21.5.28 and 21.5.29, I
finally figured out why:
-#define PATH_LOADSEARCH ".../lib/xemacs-21.5-b28/lisp"
+#define PATH_LOADSEARCH ".../share/xemacs-21.5-b29/lisp"
-#define PATH_SITE ".../lib/xemacs/site-lisp"
+#define PATH_SITE ".../share/xemacs/site-lisp"
-#define PATH_DATA ".../lib/xemacs-21.5-b28/etc"
+#define PATH_DATA ".../share/xemacs-21.5-b29/etc"
-#define PATH_INFO ".../share/info"
+#define PATH_INFO ".../share/xemacs-21.5-b29/info"
and a similar change in setup-paths.el.
Those of us with, ahem, complex installations tend to do some
post-processing on the install tree, and this is broken by arbitrarily
moving stuff around. I did eventually find an inconspicuous changelog
entry dating to 2007, and from there, a mail thread on the issue:
but this is a silly thing to have wasted so much time on.
In the future, I'd appreciate it if this sort of thing were
highlighted right up top in the release notes, along with other things
that are important to your friendly neighborhood local maintainers...
