    How do I install emacs in SUSE?


    hello guyz well i m facing the problem my classfellows installed RED HAT

    but I have suse and i dint uninstall it .. i want emacs editor for lil bit of scripting

    What do you suggest where I can get it .. please tell me other source except apt and yast ..

    coz my net speed sucks .. and its impossible for me to install it via yast thnx as suse lacks any good dl manager .. thats why .. I use windows to download program at faster speed

    please help, thanks.

    YaST doesn't need an internet connection as long as you have the CDROMs or DVD for SuSE. You can install lots of software right off of there, and I'm quite sure emacs and at least a dozen other editors are on the discs.

    Vi does everything Emacs does, for the most part. It's got a steep learning curve, though. If you just want to write text files, you could use anything, even pico or gedit. The only reason you might want to write scripts in Vi or Emacs is for their extra code-handling abilities. If you don't know how to use them or just don't care, use a simple text editor.
