XEmacs Install Issue
Hi there,
I'm running an install of xemacs on RHEL 4 64bit and ran into this issue when doing a ./configure --with-gcc (i've also used ./configure with not --with-gcc parameters, same error).

make[1]: Entering directory `/root/xemacs-21.4.22/man'
makeinfo -o ../info/ cl.texi
make[1]: makeinfo: Command not found
make[1]: *** [../info/] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/xemacs-21.4.22/man'
make: *** [info] Error 2

I'm installing XEmacs:

Kernel version:
Linux x4500-1 2.6.9-42.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Jul 12 23:32:02 EDT 2006 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

gcc (GCC) 4.2.1

Please let me know if you have any advise to this issue or anything that I might be missing?

Thank you!

It looks like 'makeinfo' command is missing. Try to install 'texinfo' package. It should contain it.

Is there a 64bit version of texinfo package around for RHEL4?
Google cant seem to find one...

It's definitely available in your distribution repository.

And here is a proof:

Will it allow me to dload even though I dont have a RHEL subscription?

I don't use Redhat, but as far as I know you can't.

I stumbled upon a 64bit texinfo and tried installing but got this error:
[admin@bofasrv1@ ~]# rpm -ivh texinfo-4.7-5.el4.2.ia64.rpm
warning: texinfo-4.7-5.el4.2.ia64.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 1d1e034b
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by texinfo-4.7-5.el4.2.ia64 is needed by texinfo-4.7-5.el4.2.ia64 is needed by texinfo-4.7-5.el4.2.ia64

Then I ran this:
[admin@bofasrv1@ ~]# rpm -i glibc-common-2.2.4-33.ia64.rpm
warning: glibc-common-2.2.4-33.ia64.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID db42a60e
error: Failed dependencies:
glibc > 2.2.4 conflicts with glibc-common-2.2.4-33.ia64
glibc-common <= 2.3.2-63 conflicts with tzdata-2006a-2.EL4.noarch

Please help.

Ok, forget about xemacs...

Anyone successful on installing a 64bit version of emacs?
Tried googling it but they were mostly defaulting me to xemacs.

Please advise.
