reduced ~/.emacs file
Description of problem:
emacs 24 fails with obscure errors to parse a previously working ~/.emacs. When shifting around/disabling code, the startup stucks.
Things worked fine with emacs 23 from F16.
| Warning (initialization): An error occurred while loading `/home/ensc/.emacs':
| File error: Cannot open load file, gpl
error can be avoided by removing/shifting the first line of the file -- this is a comment (!) with an emacs mode string. But then, startup stucks in an infinite loop (?).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emacs -q
2. M-x load-file ~/.emacs
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
I asked the upstream what can be wrong with your .emacs file
and could you please add
(setq debug-on-quit t)
so that we can analyze it?
By the way you are using Xemacs?
What do you have in your .emacs-config/lisp directory?
sorry, I forgot about this bug and do not see it anymore with recent emacs-24.3-9.2.fc18x.x86_64
