Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 18642
emacs-nox requires XFree86 !
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
I've just installed RedHat 7.0 onto a box with limited harddisk space. So
I've chosen not to install any XFree86 packages and installed emacs and
When I try to run emacs it will give me :
"Can't Open Input File : /usr/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias"
and rendering the emacs session useless.
I found in another bug report # that the locale directory exists instead in
/usr/share/locale rather than /usr/lib/X11/locale.
In fact, /usr/lib/X11 is a symlink to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11 which also doesn't
exist because I hadn't installed XFree86-4.0.1 package.
I think someone should look at this to see why emacs-nox requires
XFree86-4.0.1 to functino properly outta the box.
As a temp solution, right now I've created the /usr/X11R6/lib/X11 and put i
a symlink there to link /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale to /usr/share/locale.
