Description Ville Skyttä 2002-08-02 10:17:33 EDT
xemacs is currently built without support for any widgets, which disables 
buffer tabs, some customization buttons and dialogs.  Please add 
BuildRequires: Xaw3d-devel and --with-widgets=athena --with-athena=3d to 
%configure.  I'll attach a couple of screenshots.

Xemacs is currently built with "--with-menubars=lucid --with-scrollbars=lucid
--with-dialogs=lucid". Widgets are currently specified as supporting motif only...
Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2002-08-02 12:55:15 EDT
Well, motif is fine with me too; in that case, add BuildRequires: 
openmotif-devel and configure --with-widgets=motif.  I don't care whether it's 
motif or athena, but widgets are necessary IMO. 
BTW; SuSE and Mandrake use the athena approach...
Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-08-02 14:50:00 EDT
Exactly which release do you see a problems with? I don't see any....
Comment 6 Ville Skyttä 2002-08-02 15:57:49 EDT
I've rebuilt the xemacs-21.4.8-10 from Rawhide on a stock 7.3.  When first   
building it, I didn't have openmotif-devel or Xaw3d-devel installed.   
ldd /usr/bin/xemacs-21.4.8 for the one from rawhide's   
xemacs-21.4.8-10.i386.rpm reveals that it was compiled with motif support   
(libXm.so.3).  Motif seems to be autodetected...   
So, IMO it would be better to explicitly BuildRequire openmotif-devel and   
configure --with-widgets=motif than just to assume it's present.  
Oh, and just noticed that there are no widgets in 7.3's xemacs-21.4.6-7, it 
wasn't built with motif support... 
Comment 7 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-08-07 15:59:09 EDT
Added openmotif-devel as a buildrequires for  xemacs-21.4.8-13
