I am using emacs for as long as I can remember about 10+ years.|
There must be something I dont understand, because it could NEVER save settings in $HOME/.emacs
Everytime I reinstall the servers everyone needs to fight their way to get their old settings working again.
This happened from RH5-FC7
I can save settings all I want, but a new emacs installation ignores the old settings.
For example I have a lot of syntax highlighting and custom debuggers etc etc which does not get saved.
Whenever I start a new installed version, pop goes the weasel.

That's what .emacs is for. You should have your custom settings (settings set by Customize) saved in your .emacs or in a special `custom-file'. Have you read the manual on customization? I have never had a problem with Emacs settings across installations. Are you sure you are saving your settings? Joel
