Description Alastair Tse 2000-10-08 14:44:39 UTC
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
emacs-nox packages.

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.
