Description Kim Bisgaard 2010-05-01 06:09:08 EDT
Description of problem:
Jed seems to be missing a function called 'require'.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. jed <filename>
2. press 'ctrl-s'

Actual results:
see error 'Unable to open require.  Check the value of the S-Lang load path.'

Expected results:
Would expect to start interactive search

Additional info:
I have no '.jedrc', so I use emacs key-bindings
Comment 1 Kim Bisgaard 2010-05-09 09:00:59 EDT
Perhaps I was unclear as to the importance of the function 'require'? 

Missing it means that any function defined i a loadable file does *not* get loaded, so these std. installed files cannot be used:

Sorry, for delayed reply. I will look into this this week.
Comment 3 Rakesh Pandit 2010-05-11 10:11:59 EDT
I am not able to reproduce it on F12 64 bit machine. Once Ctrl-S is pressed it asks for word to 'Isearch forward: '.

I also don't have '.jedrc', am using emacs key-bindings.

Trying to get a new rawhide and F13 test box and see if I can reproduce it there.
Comment 4 Erwan LE PENNEC 2010-05-30 08:22:04 EDT
Same issue with the jed-0.99.19-1.fc13.i686 version...
Comment 5 Erwan LE PENNEC 2010-05-30 08:42:34 EDT
Reverting to the version in FC12 (jed-0.99.18-10.fc12.i686.rpm) solves the issue for me.
Comment 6 Garrett Mitchener 2010-06-25 10:42:19 EDT
Something seems to have changed in Fedora 13 about how jed and slang are packaged.  If you install the package slang-slsh, that comes with require.sl and other important files that jed uses.

See also bug #605471 which proposes that jed be repackaged to require slang-slsh.  I think that would make this problem go away.
Comment 7 Kim Bisgaard 2010-06-25 15:20:22 EDT
Thanks Garrett!
I can confirm that installing slang-slsh makes this problem go away. I propose that jed be repackaged to require slang-slsh.

Comment 14 Dewayne 2011-01-14 23:37:16 EST
I have been trying to install the update for a couple of days now and this is what I keep getting:

Window title - No packages to update - KPackageKit

None of the selected packages could be updated.

slang-slsh-2.2.2-2.fc14.x86_64 requires slang = 2.2.2-2.fc14 : Success - empty transaction

and it does not install.  I click OK and it rescans and wants to install again.  Is this just me?
