If I try to use mh-e, it complains that it can't find 'inc' or
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run emacs.
2. Type "M-X mh-rmail".
Actual Results: "Can't find 'inc' or 'mhl'."
Expected Results: Should start up mh-e.
I tried to get the latest version of mh-e from SourceForge, but the version
I got from there had the same problem that exists in the Red Hat release.
Eventually I found version 5.0.2 of mh-e as a tarball at
and this version works fine.
Do you have nmh installed?
Closed - lack of feedback, and it works here.
Well, yes, I have (and had) nmh installed. If I didn't, version 5.0.2 of mh-e
wouldn't have worked for me. The problem was that for various important reasons
that I won't go into, I have nmh installed in a non-standard place. Earlier
versions of mh-e were quite able to cope with this. They'd find "inc" in the
PATH environment variable and figure out the rest. The latest version of mh-e
on SourceForge (version 5.0.92) is also able to cope with non-standard nmh
placement without problem. For reasons unknown to me, however, there are some
versions of mh-e inbetween versions 5.0.2 and 5.0.92 (including the version that
comes with Red Hat 7.1 and 7.2) that can't cope easily with nmh being installed
in a non-standard place.
