Description Seth Vidal 1999-11-05 16:02:36 UTC
if you start xemacs from a prompt it throws the following

Couldn't find obvious defaults for:
Perhaps some directories don't exist, or the XEmacs
is in a strange place?

xemacs then starts after a short pause and runs normally.
However my users think its an error and post it to an
internal problem list. so its VERY annoying to me.
more so I can't get it to go away with an RC modification.

Create this directory so that xemacs stops whining:


That's all there is to it. It wasn't included in the build because it
wasn't created when installing from a tarball, this is going to be
fixed in the next release.
