Description Bryan Reece 1999-05-23 23:02:54 UTC
With emacs-20.3-15 and emacs-nox-20.3-15 installed, describe-function (C-h d) prints random pieces of doc strings rather than the correct ones. To reproduce, try C-h d fround RET in emacs-nox. The problem appears to be that the DOC string generated when building emacs-nox is lost because both the X11 and non-X versions get the same version number. A possible fix would seem to be to give the non-X emacs a different build number, thus giving its doc file a different name. ------- Email Received From email@example.com 05/26/99 19:21 -------

Is there any reason to have both emacs and emacs-nox installed? emacs runs perfectly fine in character-mode. The only difference is that emacs is linked against the X libraries and emacs-nox is not, allowing you to install emacs-nox if you don't have the X libraries. Otherwise, you can just install emacs. To use emacs (with X) in character-mode, either unset DISPLAY or start it as emacs -nw.

emacs-20.3-15 contains files common to both the X11 and non-X versions. It has no emacs binary. One of emacs-X11-20.3-15 or emacs-nox-20.3-15 is required to get a working installation. The reason I don't just go ahead and use emacs-X11 on that machine is that it is painfully slow on a small machine ("Eight Megabytes And Constantly Swapping" is no longer a joke, at least with emacs 20.3 linked against X).
