Description Jón Fairbairn 2006-02-15 15:30:54 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):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start emacs
2. M-x eval-expression (mh-letter-mode)
Actual results:
mh-find-progs: Cannot find the commands `inc' and `mhl' and the file `components'

Expected results:
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.

Additional info:
problem is that mhl and friends are in /usr/lib64/nmh/on this arch, not /usr/lib/...

workround: put 
 (setq mh-lib-progs "/usr/lib64/nmh/") in .emacs
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2006-02-16 00:40:50 EST
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.
Comment 3 Josh Bressers 2006-09-11 08:24:32 EDT
This is fixed in nmh-1_1-19_fc6.  The utility programs are located in
/usr/libexec/nmh now.
