Description osman 2000-01-06 11:28:34 UTC
Why has this package been split up?
I mean why are there X11, nox, mule etc versions when the version that will
be started by the menu/command xemacs starts-up the main binary?
When someone installs the X11 version he suspects that that binary will be
used to startup.
Could you make those packages in such a way that they can be installed
without the need for the main package or at least make them so that the
main binary is deleted and the symbolic link adjusted?
Now I have adjusted the symbolic link "/usr/bin/xemacs" myself but that
shouldn't be neccesary for common users that install them...

The symlink issues have been fixed in the current devel packages
