VM

availability of 8.1.3?

Asked by Robert Huff on 2014-05-29

Hello:
        I have just been bitten by the Emacs 24.x+make-local-hook bug and - as far as I can tell - VM 8.1.3 is the only version which has a fix. (Is this true?)
        However, I can't seem to find a way to access the code, either by tarball or code checkout. How do I do this?

Can you use the public version vm-8.2.0b? It won't have this problem.

     When I do this with Xemacs 21.4, this happens:

Root>> make install

 "config.log" is available on request.

What OS?

John Hein (xpqheqdvq4) said : #4

I should have added that the 'Need an operator' signature is a classic sign of running a bsd make on a non-portable gmake makefile. Hence the question about the OS.

Thanks Uday Reddy, that solved my question.

Robert Huff (roberthuff) said : #6

     That was it; I'm on FreeBSD, and using gmake made everything work.
     Thanks to both, and I am now running 8.2.0b and all seems well.

     Respectfully,
