I had trouble installing ESS 5.2.2 from source on Fedora Core 1 but
this is resolved.

Could I suggest that the unix installation documentation includes a
minimum version number of texi2html as a prerequisite. I believe this
should be 1.66

Thanks to those who responded.

The .el lisp files work fine - its only the documentation that bombs
and thats not absolutely necessary

In particular,

- Toni Rossini suggested updating texi2html (this worked)
  I just installed texi2html 1.70 from source as the one installed
  on Fedora Core 1 with tetex is 1.64.
  'make install' now works fine: no changes necessary

- Paul Johnson suggested using his ess-emacs-5.2.1 rpm because he had
  the 5.2.2  bug fixes included. see

- I accidentally found emacs-ess-5.2.2-3.tgm.noarch.rpm at

I think that the last two options will work fine as well.
