Fedora problems – emacs and cvs

Part of a continuing saga of posts outlining any difficulties I have with my switch to Fedora (from a heavily broken hybrid of Ubuntu, Gobuntu, Debian and gNewSense)

CVS check ins refuse to use emacs.

I don’t know why.

I have $EDITOR, $CVSEDITOR, $ALTERNATIVE_EDITOR all set — nothing.

I want to be able to type ‘cvs ci’ and have it prompt me for a commit message in emacs.

That’s all.

One thought on “Fedora problems – emacs and cvs

    This is what I have (which works for me)…
    > export | grep -i emacs
    declare -x CVSEDITOR=”/usr/bin/emacs -nw”
