Description Ville Skyttä 2001-02-08 23:14:11 UTC
JDE fails to start with the message:

File mode specification error: (file-error "Cannot open load file" "eieio")

...with only the xemacs-21.1.*.rpm package installed (no xemacs-el, that
is) because the eieio libary (eieio.elc in this case) is not available.
The original package in http://ftp.xemacs.org/packages/jde-1.24-pkg.tar.gz
does not have it either but it contains the non-compiled eieio.el (as does
the xemacs-el-21.1.*.rpm), which makes it work.

However, it would be nice to have this included, since it can be
byte-compiled (if xemacs & xemacs-el are installed) eg. like:

cd /usr/lib/xemacs/xemacs-packages/lisp/jde
xemacs -batch -l ./eieio.el -f batch-byte-compile eieio.el

The bug is at least in the 7.0 update xemacs-21.1.14-2.7.i386.rpm and
rawhide's xemacs-21.1.14-3.i386.rpm

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-02-09 01:46:36 UTC
It's distributed the way xemacs does, and I don't see any reason to change that...
it should be in the main rpm, though. Will move.

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-02-12 23:38:47 UTC
Fixed in xemacs-21.1.14-5

*** Bug 31041 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2001-04-15 10:53:00 UTC
The same problem is still in 6.2 powertool updates' xemacs-21.1.14-2.62.i386.rpm.

Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-04-15 15:28:25 UTC
Of course, the RPMs are identical. As I wrote above, it's fixed in Rawhide. For
Red Hat Powertools 6.2, make sure to install xemacs-el if this is a problem.
