I built and installed xemacs on a sparc 60 running Solaris 8.
As I understand it, the pre-built kit will install to /usr/local; I don't
have permissions to write there
so I have to build it to install it elsewhere.
I did as the directions said and downloaded the source and the packages,
untarred and unzipped them.
The only difference is, I was not root and I did a ./configure --prefix=/dir
where dir is one directory
above where I was installing from.
Then I did the make install
Then I did a
setenv EMACSPACKAGEPATH /the_path/where_the/packages/were/untarred
When I run it I get Warning:Cannot convert string <key>Escape,_Key_Cancel to
and other similar warnings when I run it .
The tool bar looks all messed up, the syntax highlighting color does not
work properly and many options
like paren matching are missing.
Do I need more packages or did I neglect t do something?
