To emacs support staff,
I recently purchased a DELL Inspiron E1505 notebook
computer. I really like my E1505, but that computer came
with Windows XP. I have used GNU/Linux before and I wanted
that operating system again. I purchased a RedHat 'Fedora
5' Linux distribution to put on my E1505 notebook computer.
I installed that Linux operating system on my computer as
the only operating system. I deleted the Windows XP
operating system that came with the computer.
I do not have any internet access on my E1505 computer at
all right now, I use the town public library computers for
sending emails like this and browsing the web. I live 22
miles away from town, so I only get to the library once
every two weeks.
At public library in town, I accessed your www.gnu.org
website and downloaded your emacs file on to a USB flash
drive. I had no problem copying the emacs tar file from my
USB drive onto my computer. I read your INSTALL and README
files on my computer after I had extracted your emacs files
from the tar file I had downloaded at the library. But I
ran into problems following your installation directions.
I ran the installation '.configure' program with no
problem. But when I tried to run 'make' to build the emacs
executable, I ran into problems. I kept getting a
'segmentation fault' error as the last message on the
screen after 'make' had printed a whole bunch of messages
on my computer screen that it was doing things
successfully. I did 'make distclean' and 'make' several
times over. But I always got 'segmentation fault' message
on my terminal screen after running the 'make' command, and
always after 'make' had printed out a bunch of positive
messages saying everything was going alright. The last
message also said 'emacs' was being deleted.
Can you help me solve this problem? I really want to use
emacs. My telephone number is 1-760-257-3812 in the
southern California desert or you can email me. I would
definitely like your help. Thank you for reading this
My email address is 'address@hidden'.
