The KDE menu and GNOME menu should be pretty much the same in RHL 9.

You should be able to find XEmacs in:

   Programming -> More Programming Tools -> XEmacs

if not it should be fixed in rawhide and our current betas.

Sorry, I only install KDE and there is no

Because of this I create this bugreport.

The bug should be fixed in Red Hat 9!
I am try to install xemacs-21.4.13-5.i386.rpm from rawhide. It needs a lot of
other new rpms from rawhide. And the best is xemacs-21.4.13-5.i386.rpm was
compiled with a newer gcc Version than Red Hat 9 contains. At this point I
I install xemacs-21.4.13-5.i386.rpm with --nodeps to see that the menu item
is availible. Yes it is.
xemacs can not be used
 --> xemacs: relocation error: xemacs: symbol sys_siglist, version GLIBC_2.3.3
not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference

Sorry, on this way I do not update productiv systems.
Sorry, this is not a correction of a mistake for a Red Hat 9 rpm.

Would it be better if I correct this problem myself?

But I do not understand that it can be so difficult to do the following in the

You can find net-xemacs.desktop in directory:

net-xemacs.desktop is needed in directory /usr/share/applnk-redhat/Programming
There are links in directory /var/lib/menu/kde/Applications/Programming

cd /var/lib/menu/kde/Applications/Programming
ln -s /usr/share/applications/net-xemacs.desktop net-xemacs.desktop

The end of support for Red Hat 9 is April 30, 2004!

Comment 3 Uwe Beck 2003-09-14 20:32:51 UTC
Here I am again.

You must only do a correction in /usr/share/applications/net-xemacs.desktop




Link is not works longer since one of the last updates (i see this in

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2003-09-16 12:22:05 UTC
If you would like to use the latest xemacs package with RHL 9 I suggest
you rebuild it from the srpm.  Otherwise please add the semicolon to the
xemacs desktop file by hand as you suggest.  I'm sorry but I don't really
want to do an errata just to add a single semicolon to the desktop file.

The taroon xemacs is on different branch from that in rawhide/Severn, which
as you kindly verified is fixed.

Comment 5 Uwe Beck 2003-09-22 22:09:06 UTC
I have rebuild it from the srpm now. And I can understand your reason.
