Re: Problems with emacspeak/bbdb/vm with emacs20.7.3

          Hi Cheryl,

Really these are two different version numbers.  Emacs version 20.7.2
means that you have Emacs 20.7 compiled in second time.  I think last
digit in this case doesn't make much sense.
In the version which dpkg says last number means version of a package
containing Emacs 20.7.  The whole version number in this case should
be of the form 20.7-3.

When exactly du you get these messages?  What exactly these messages
are?  You could turn on debug-on-error by the command
toggle-debug-on-error and show a backtrace in the case you are getting
an error.

It seems to me You haven't put in ~/.vm or ~/.emacs the form
(require 'bbdb).
