Obtaining Emacs 24 on OS X is really simple. There are several popular ways to do it.
+
* [[Installing Emacs on OS X]]
 +
* [[Installing Emacs on GNU/Linux]]
 +
* [[Installing Emacs on Windows]]
 +
* [[Installing Emacs on FreeBSD]]
  
==== As a binary package ====
+
[[Category:Install Or Upgrade‎]]
 
+
Simply download a pretest (or a nightly build) from [http://emacsformacosx.com Emacs for OSX].  Probably the best option would be to get the latest pretest from [http://emacsformacosx.com/builds here].
+
 
+
==== Build it from source ====
+
 
+
The second easy way to obtain Emacs 24 is via [http://mxcl.github.com/homebrew/ homebrew]. Just type the following incantation in your shell and you’re done:
+
 
+
<source lang="bash">
+
$ brew install emacs --cocoa --use-git-head --HEAD
+
$ cp -r /usr/local/Cellar/emacs/HEAD/Emacs.app /Applications/
+
</source>
+
The second step is optional, but it’s recommended if you like to start Emacs from the launchpad or from Spotlight.
+
 
+
Chances are good you have an older version of Emacs installed by default with OS X. It's suggested you to remove that older Emacs version to avoid conflicts with the new one. Do this:
+
 
+
<source lang="bash">
+
$ sudo rm /usr/bin/emacs
+
$ sudo rm -rf /usr/share/emacs
+
</source>
+
That’s all folk! You may now proceed to the configuration section.
+
 
+
==== Use a package manager (Emacs 23 only at time of writing) ====
+
 
+
* Fink
+
* MacPorts
+
<source lang="bash">
+
port install emacs
+
</source>
+
 
+
You can add <tt>+<variant> [+<variant>...]</tt> where <tt>variant</tt> is one or more of:
+
* dbus: Builds emacs with D-Bus support
+
* gtk: Builds emacs as an X11 program with GTK+2 widgets
+
* motif: Builds emacs as an X11 program with Motif
+
* universal: Build for multiple architectures
+
* x11: Builds emacs as a X11 program with Lucid widgets
+
The gtk, motif and x11 variants require (depend on) MacPorts' X11 libraries.
+
 
+
==== Download and install Aquamacs ====
+
 
+
=== [[GNULinux]] ===
+
 
+
