GNU Emacs18.59 on AIX: fatal error (23)

GNU Emacs18.59 on AIX: fatal error (23)

Post by Kezhao Zha » Wed, 05 Apr 1995 04:00:00

I installed GNU Emacs 18.59 on an IBM RS6000 running AIX3.2( I didn't
install the huge 19.** version  because of lack of disk space.) There
is one very nagging problem: whenever tty is /dev/pst/0, emacs hangs
with a 'fatal error (23)'. Could anyone tell me what causes the
problem and how to solve it?

Any help is appreciated.

1. Fatal error (23)

When I press C-h in emacs, I get the message: 'Fatal error (23)'.  I have
tried two different versions (18.59 and 19.21), to no avail.  I suspect
this has something to do with the terminal setup, because, version 19.21
works under XWindows, but, from a vt100 it prints the error message.

A little over a week ago, version 18.59 used to work.  Only recently has
this problem appeared, and I can't seem to recall any changes to terminal
setup or to my installation of emacs.

The system in question is an IBM RS/6000 580 running AIX 3.2.4.  It has
256MB of RAM and 20GB of disk.

Thank you for any suggestions.
