Re: Emacspeak 9.0



There are a total of three core emacs packages available at RedHat. 
You'll need two of them:

A common package called something like emacs-20.3...
Which you'll need in every case. Now you can choose if you want 
an Emacs which runs in the terminal but and has X enhancements (mouse
support..). If you want this, then you have to grab the emacs-X11-20...
package.

If you don't want X enhancements (but it runs in the Xterminal window
too!), then you'll grab emacs-nox-20.... Size difference between
emacs-X11-20 and emacs-nox-20 is about 100k (compressed).
