Description Kyuso Cahi 2005-01-02 07:56:58 EST
Description of problem:

emacs does not load $HOME/.emacs by default

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. run emacs without any arguments
2. change options (e.g. syntax highlighting), save ($HOME/.emacs
should be updated)
3. re-run emacs without any arguments
4. no change is seen

Actual results:
no change in options

Expected results:
changes in option should show the next time emacs is run

Additional info:
'emacs -u $USER' does load the init file
'emacs -q' behaves the same as emacs
'emacs' without arguments should behave like 'emacs -u $USER', not
'emacs -q'

I am running FC3 and have verified that my emacs is reading the
~/.emacs file on start, however I have NOT been able to get emacs to
use the resources specified in either the .Xdefaults or .Xrecources
file(s). I verified it is function correclty with these resources on
an FC2 system. Both my FC2 and FC3 systems are up2date, and this is my
FC3 installed rpms:

Darn where is that remove comment feature?
Please ignore my previous comment, I learned that the X-window
environment needs to be restarted or xrdb -load run on changed
.Xdefaults or .Xresources modificaitons.

Hmm. I tried again, and it now works. I don't know what caused the
original problem.
Anyway, no longer a problem.
