Description Richard Cobbe 2001-02-16 14:41:35 UTC
The recently-updated xemacs packages (21.1.14-2.62) have
Info-directory-path set incorrectly.  I don't have the full value
available, but the path contains something like

"/usr/lib/xemacs/xemacs-packages/info/"
"/usr/share/info"

Rather unfortunately, the latter directory doesn't exist on a stock RH6.2
system.  Bringing up info breaks with a fatal error as a result.

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-02-16 17:44:06 UTC
Doh. We tested for other changes (like aspell vs. ispell), but not this.

Workaround:

Edit /usr/share/xemacs-21.1.14/lisp/site-start.el , and change the infopath to
point at /usr/info instead of /usr/share/info.

This is not a problem with current releases, as they actually have the info
pages in the FHS-compliant location.
