Comment 1 Garrett Mitchener 2012-06-13 14:24:46 EDT
I just ran into this. There are initialization files


(and the corresponding .el files) that refer to the variable inihibit-first-line-modes-regexps, but it has been renamed in recent versions of emacs.  Removing those files got rid of this problem for me.  There might be other elisp packages with the same problem.  I found these by using grep:

grep -r 'inhibit-first-line' /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp


rpm -qf /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/gnu-smalltalk/smalltalk-mode.elc

etc. to find the package they belong to.

There might be other emacs packages with this problem that I just don't happen to have.

The real fix is for all those packages to be updated and rebuilt.  Meanwhile, at least on my system, I got rid of the problem by removing the emacs-gnu-smalltalk and emacs-goodies packages:

yum erase emacs-gnu-smalltalk* emacs-goodies*

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 3 Petr Hracek 2013-02-28 07:25:44 EST
When the packages like emacs-gnu-smalltalk* and emacs-goodies* will be rebuilt that all will work.

Corresponding bugzillas reports were opened:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=833100 for emacs-gnu-smalltalk*
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=833103 for emacs-goodies*
