    Installing emacs

    I have recently subscribed to a VPS and am interested in installing emacs on the server. I am running CentOS and I have attempted to compile emacs from the source files.
    When I do the configure script runs successfully, but when I type in make, it fails, to complete the script with a segmentation fault.

    Dumping under names emacs and emacs-21.4.1
    make[1]: *** [emcas] Segmentation fault
    make[1]: *** Deleting file 'emacs'

    Have googled this fault I have discovered that his is a known problem that can be solved by switching off Exec-shield on Fedora Core. Is there an equivalent fix for CentOS

    Thanks a lot.

    why on earth would you want to install emacs? the world has evolved and there are decent applications with something called user friendliness, you should give that a try

    back to your problem, why are you installing from source? just do "yum install emacs"

    Do I need to install yum, because that was what I originally tried but I get the error message:
    bash: yum: command not found
    There is long tenuous silly reason that I want emacs, obviously all very silly!
    Thanks for the help.

    That's correct, Marry, you would need to install yum first.

    Installing yum is pretty easy on centos. Here is KB for it:
