Subject: Problems with microEMACS v.3.10 on SUN-SPARCstation
I have a question concerning MicroEmacs v.3.10 running on a SPARCstation 1:
We compiled it using the BSD-option, since the SUN-option led to a missing
header file (ndir.h - we haven't installed Sys V compatibility).
As far as I can tell now it runs ok, but we have a problem with the (.emacsrc)
startup file: certain commands (e.g. add-mode, add-global-mode, delete-mode and
delete-window) execute but immedately abort the execution of the startup-file,
i.e. it doesn't execute any command further down the lane.
All seems to be well if these commands are executed manually from the keyboear
in a running uEmacs.
There is a workaround for us right now using the "!force" directive - then the
whole startup-file is executed, but I consider it to be an error to abort exe-
Now before I dig into the SUN version too deep: Is this problem (and a possible
cure (FIX,PATCH, or whatever) known? What causes it and what can be done about
it? Comments are welcome.
As an aside to Daniel Lawrence: If the SUN option is chosen (- obviously the
BSD should not be choosen simultaneously), there is a compiler error, because
no code from EPATH.H is incorporated, which seems to be a bug - a possible so-
lution: add SUN to the rest of the other UNIX options (BSD, V7, etc.), if that
is, what has originally been intended to do.
Thanks for listening and in advance for any help.
