Description Ville Skyttä 2002-11-17 16:41:02 EST
There are numerous bug reports about XEmacs on RH 7 and 8 on the XEmacs mailing
lists, with the resolution including a recommendation of configuring with
--use-union-type=yes, see

Perhaps RH should use that option, I've personally used a modified version of
the RH8 XEmacs RPM for quite some time now which is built with this option, and
it has worked very well for me.
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2002-11-17 22:08:18 EST
Yep, I'll try using union-types in the next package release.
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2002-11-18 07:48:31 EST
21.4.10-3 was built with union-type.
Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2002-12-18 16:00:47 EST
Uh-oh.  There's some new information about this one, see

I don't know which is better, union-type or not, but I've never had problems
*with* it on Red Hat.  Just a FYI.
