mh-e can't find `inc' and `mhl' on multilib archs
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:24 EST
Description of problem:
starting mh-e (eg by attempting to read mail or compose) results in an error
"Cannot find the commands `inc' and `mhl' and the file `components'"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start emacs
2. M-x eval-expression (mh-letter-mode)
mh-find-progs: Cannot find the commands `inc' and `mhl' and the file `components'
No errors... if you instead try to read mail using mh-e you get the
same error, and you'd expect to read mail but don't.
problem is that mhl and friends are in /usr/lib64/nmh/on this arch, not /usr/lib/...
(setq mh-lib-progs "/usr/lib64/nmh/") in .emacs
Thanks for the report: I really think nmh ought to install programs in an
arch independent place, eg move them to /usr/libexec/nmh/ say.
Reassigned to nmh for now.
That's fair. I'll fix this in the near future then.
This is fixed in nmh-1_1-19_fc6. The utility programs are located in
