emacs on solaris 10
Hey guys. I've been fiddling around trying to install emacs on my solaris 10 test environment.
I've picked up emacs and every dependency from sunfreeware.com and everything was installed smoothly. However, emacs still complains about one package.
I ran ldd /usr/local/bin/emacs, and got the list of all used packages.
libpng.12.so.0 is fine, but just below, I got
libpng.12.so.0 (PNG12_0) => (version not found)
How do I solve this? I've been googling around and cannot seem to find anything useful, so I hoped to draw upon you guys' vast experience ;)
Well, I run Solaris 10 - x86 on my system (in a VM) and it has emacs installed by default. Doesn't yours? It works fine for me. Ok, regular emacs failed with this error:
ld.so.1: emacs: fatal: libucb.so.1: open failed: No such file or directory
However, xemacs works just fine... Go figure! So, try xemacs and see if that works for you, assuming you have the X-Windows server enabled.
