Hey all.


I'm a complete noob to Slackware and Linux in general, been a Windows bunny until tonight.

Just installed Slackware on a spankingly new PC, and I'm having all sorts of fun trying to make things work, and for the most part I'm doing ok.


The one thing I haven't been able to problemsolve my way through is emacs.

When i try and load it, it throws the following error:

emacs: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Unsure how to proceed from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.






Someone from another forum told me that to run emacs in text only mode, I need to delete the emacs symbolic link from /usr/bin and create a new symbolic link pointing to emacs-<version>-no-x11, which worked perfectly.
