And installed them all. Got a couple of warnings
Those warnings just indicate that RPM was overwriting previously
installed, non-RPM-controlled, files. You recovered appropriately.
However, I *strongly* urge you to configure your yum repositories to
use EPEL. With a bare RPM install, you'll never know when an update
becomes available. With yum, it will check for you automatically
every time you run "yum upgrade".
Now, xemacs works, however, the all important script that I want -
need - to
run, namely "hide-lines.el" (http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/hide-lines.el
does not run as expected.
No, that was written for Emacs, not XEmacs. However, it isn't very
hard to adapt. Try the attached version. My version has a major
drawback, inherited from the original, though. Do you see the line
? That is modifying a buffer-local variable. Running that command
once at load time is wrong. That needs to be run in *every buffer*
where you want to do the line hiding. This code should really be
turned into a minor mode. See hideshow.el for an example of how to do
that. It should be at
/usr/share/xemacs/xemacs-packages/lisp/c-support/hideshow.el in your
XEmacs-Beta mailing list
