<h1>XEmacs Installation HOWTOs</h1>
<p><b>19 Sep 1999</b>:
<p>These installation instructions apply to UNIX and Linux
systems and assume that you have <b>root</b>
access. These instructions result in a <b>non</b>-Mule
XEmacs. If you have to alter or modify any steps in order to
install on your configuration, or if these instructions are
not clear or do not work for you, please email the details
to <a href="mailto:webmaster@xemacs.org">webmaster@xemacs.org</a>.
<ol type="1">
<li>Check out the list of optional
<a href="Download/optLibs.html">external libraries</a>
used by XEmacs. Obtain, build, and configure any you do
not have.
<li><a href="http://www.xemacs.org/Download/index.html">Download</a> the following files
from the <code>current</code> directory:
<br><b>xemacs-21.1.*.tar.gz</b>
<br><b>xemacs-21.1.*-elc.tar.gz</b>
<br><b>xemacs-21.1.*-info.tar.gz</b>
<br>(The current version number will replace the *)
<br>Please use a networkologically close mirror!
<li>Expand the above files into the directory used for compiling, e.g.
<code>gzip -dc xemacs-21.1.*.tar.gz | tar xf -</code>.
<li>Change to the directory where you expanded the files, e.g.
<code>cd /usr/src/xemacs-21.1.*</code>.
<li>Type <code>./configure ; make</code>.
<li>After the compile finishes, switch to the root account and type
<code>make install</code>.
<li><a href="http://www.xemacs.org/Download/index.html">Download</a> the following files
from the <code>packages</code> directory:
<br><b>efs-*-pkg.tar.gz</b>
<br><b>xemacs-base-*-pkg.tar.gz</b>
<br>(The current version number will replace the *)
<br>Please use a networkologically close mirror!
<li>Expand the above files into
<code>/usr/local/lib/xemacs/xemacs-packages/</code>. If
you would prefer to install these in a different
location, set the <code>EMACSPACKAGEPATH</code>
environment variable to your preferred location, and then
expand the files in the directory in the variable. Don't
forget to export the variable, and to add it to the
appropriate startup script!
<li>Start XEmacs by typing <code>xemacs</code>.
<li>From the menubar, choose <b>Options -&gt; Manage Packages -&gt; Add Download Site</b>,
and pick a networkologically close mirror.
<li>From the menubar, choose <b>Options -&gt; Manage Packages -&gt;
Update Installed Packages</b>. This will download the
most recent package index (PGP errors may occur and can
be ignored) and list the packages available for
install. Instructions and key bindings for this buffer
are at the bottom; use the scroll bar to view them. If
in doubt about a particular package, it is generally
safe to just install it.
<li>Once the package files have been downloaded and
installed, XEmacs must be exited and restarted in order
to use the package functions.
