Re: Production Version 42.0 Fails to Build



Thanks for confirming this, Tim. I seriously doubt my emacs environment is as broken as was claimed earlier. Besides, when someone claims something as strongly as that and offers no further details, How the hell would I be able to fix it? I have what I believe to be a fairly simple configuration of emacs for local packages but emacs itself, is strait from a production package with my distro (version 24.4).

Further more, when I have a successful build of this package, what I upload to the Arch User repository is just a package containing a build script along with some parameters that set proper paths and such. The user downloads this package, runs it and that will fetch the base tar ball and compile/build it. The AUR doesn’t distribute pre-built binaries.

Tim, I will be curious about what you find.

This is with emacs 24.5 built from the official release source tarball.
