Description Michal Jaegermann 2000-08-02 16:28:15 EDT
Any attempt to use spell checker from emacs results in "aspell did
not output version line" message and no spelling is done.  Instead
I found later a core file which was identified as

core: ELF 32-bit LSB core file of 'aspell' (signal 11), Intel 80386,
version 1

There is also no manual page for aspell and a pile of html is not
a replacement for something which cannot even pretend that it is
a graphics utility

You wouldn't happen to have an old .aspell* file lying around? I discovered I
had the same problem when you asked,  deleted these (after much fruitless
debugging first...) and voila: It worked.
Note that pinstripe itself will not support foreign dictionaries as I forgot to
rebuild them.... ("oops" and "bah - why should it be so dependent on the aspell
Comment 2 Kevin Atkinson 2000-08-05 03:04:49 EDT
This bug was due to my (I am the author of Aspell) stupidity.  Aspell .32.1 has
this problem fixed.
