Dear ESS users:
I have some RPMS you can use if you like ess, use Emacs, and have Fedora
I put the SRPM, spec file and the rpm debug file in the same directory.
If somebody with posting access to the ESS site wants to post a link or
post copies, that will be fine with me.
I believe if you have another rpm based linux, you should download the file:
and then run
rpmbuild --rebuild ess-emacs-5.2.2-1fc2.src.rpm
and it will build you your own RPM file.
I'm attaching to this email the small patch that I applied. This
addresses the problem that Stephen mentioned below and also addresses
some of the packaging problems. I do think it is very important that
this RPM should make ESS work well without any additional user
configuration--no messing about in ~/.emacs or such. And this does work.
I DO wish I knew how to fix the make process in ESS in order to make
package creation more standard. The big problem I see is that the
prefix option to make install is ignored. If you do
make prefix=/tmp/ess install
it just ignores the prefix and tries to install according to the
settings in the Makefile.
same happens if you try the newer style
make DESTDIR=/tmp/ess install
