FC3 dired useless in console: "no file on line"
Last modified: 2008-02-12 22:01:19 EST
Description of problem:
When using dired in a console, such as with emacspeak or via ssh login, only
some files are recognized, others are said to be "no file on line" -- a
websearch of this error message leads to the Emacs FAQ, but the advice there, to
use US date format, does not apply (it is clearly already US date format) and
even changing the dired listing options to "-lt --color=never" does not solve
the problem for every filename. the dired regex looks fine, so I wonder if
there is some problem with the emacs distro, or with the console/gnome-terminal
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dired on a directory containing C-language files, try to load any .c or .h file
by hitting return with the cursor on that line; you get the error, but when on
the TODO or Makefile, the file loads into the editor as expected.
