This works for me. I would appreciate knowing if it works for you.
(spec and SRPM file are in same directory)
After installing, please review the file
if you want to tailor your startup settings for ess. I have it set here
so that R starts in its own buffer and help windows show in a separate
(single) buffer as well.
Toolbar buttons work, except for the one furthest on the right (ESS,
with a tooltip that says "go to ESS". If R is in a separate frame, that
button does not seem to do anything.
If you run Fedora Core 1 or RedHat 9, take the src.rpm file and rebuild
for yourself with
rpmbuild --rebuild ess-emacs-5.2.1-1fc2.src.rpm
That will create an rpm you can use (although the file name will still
have fc2 in it, it should be ok for wherever it is built).
If the file name drives you insane, install the SRPM file:
rpm -ivh ess-emacs-5.2.1-1fc2.src.rpm
then in your rpm SPEC directory, edit the spec file to change the
version name, and build a new rpm with
rpmbuild -ba ess-emacs-5.2.1.spec
(I think that's what I called the spec file...)
