Jed seems to be missing a function called 'require'
Last modified: 2011-01-14 23:37:16 EST
Description of problem:
Jed seems to be missing a function called 'require'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. jed <filename>
2. press 'ctrl-s'
see error 'Unable to open require. Check the value of the S-Lang load path.'
Would expect to start interactive search
I have no '.jedrc', so I use emacs key-bindings
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.
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.
Same issue with the jed-0.99.19-1.fc13.i686 version...
Reverting to the version in FC12 (jed-0.99.18-10.fc12.i686.rpm) solves the issue for me.
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.
I can confirm that installing slang-slsh makes this problem go away. I propose that jed be repackaged to require slang-slsh.

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?
