The emacs-core bundle


The emacs-core bundle builds and installs the GNU Emacs extensible editor.

This bundle is intended for server configurations, using a minimal configuration with no graphical capabilities, no sound, etc. However, if you build your own binaries, the package will link against your particular system including the X Window system installed on your machine.

It also configures the /etc/profile.d/ script to set the EDITOR enviroment variable at boot time. Either log in again to get this variable set or source the profile file for the current session:

$ source /etc/profile.d/
