Hi, I just got to a new job and tried to install emacs on my new
machine, (well, it's not new - but it's new to me). It's an IRIS SGI
4D/35 (or so they tell me) running IRIX 4.0.3
I downloaded emacs 18.59 and I couldn't get it to compile whatever I
did. Before I tried to compile emacs I got the latest version of gcc
and got that compiled and running no problem. Then I tried emacs and
got nothing but problems. My problems always start when I try to do a
make in the src subdirectory. I get a lot of warnings about
mismatched types in verious programs, then the make stops for an
error. I then tried to use cc instead of gcc and I got many less
warnings, but eventually it crashed because it said it ran out of pure
lisp space, or some such weirdness.
So this is really driving me up the wall, and what I'm wondering is,
is there anyone out there who's done this exact same thing and had no
problems? If so, perhaps you could get in touch with me, because I
have a feeling if I could find the right person I could clear this up
easily. Of course, I could be wrong. Anyway, if you have done this,
and got it working, could you please send me mail? Thanks.
Such wind as scatters young men through the world, to seek their
fortunes farther than at home, where small experience grows.
