What version of efs are you using?
Ummm. I forget what version of efs I was using (sorry, too many
versions of too many things) but upgrading to 1.22 worked better.
In the earlier release of efs (solaris 2.1.11) I got the
'Error in process filter' type error. When I upgraded to 1.22 I got
Opening input file: No such file or directory,
CWD'ing to /anonymous＠ftp.sunsite.utk.edu:/pub/xemacs/packages/...done
CWD'ing to /anonymous＠ftp.sunsite.utk.edu:/pub/xemacs/packages/...
Logging in as user anonymous...done; MOTD of 22 lines
Logging in as user anonymous...
Opening FTP connection to ftp.sunsite.utk.edu...
M-x find-file-at-point (which I think uses the same efs stuff)
was able to find the package-index.LATEST.pgp file with no problems.
I was able to save the package-index file and go from there.
I'll try to upgrade efs to 1.25 soon, I've figured out how to babysit
You could try the one in Pre-Releases.
Package name Vers. Vers. Description
