< was: Re: Can't access info:>
[[Problem: emacs can't find info files.. ]]
I think I traced my problem to a bug in (file-truename).I have had
problems with this before.
While Trying to access the info directory /usr/share/local/gnu/info, emacs
tries to find its file-truename and finds "/system/1.5/common/gnu/info".
And soon after, encounters error, because there is no such path on our
There is, however a path /:/system/1.5/common/gnu/info. And the info
files do indeed exist on that path. Emacs somehow ignored thos /:/
to complicate the matter further, this : itself seems to be yet another
link to /afs/glue.umd.edu
so, the correct path where i did find the info files
is: /afs/glue.umd.edu/system/1.5/common/gnu/info. I gave this full path
to emacs for info, and my emacs can finally access the info-files.. yay..
Another pointer to there being somehting strange is:
Find file: /:/:/:/:/~/
and then I press TAB.
According to documentation, it should immediately become
and now but it instead says "No such file.."
The above was with emacs20.3.1 on unix.
This does *not* seemt to be a problem with emacs-19.29
To check this.
(file-truename "/:/system") in both
Emacs 20.3.1: "/system"
