Installing

Building Emacs

You can build Emacs from source on every distribution out there. Use this option only if your distribution doesn't already provide an Emacs version of interest to you.

Very few distributions bundle Emacs snapshot builds. If your distribution does not have very latest builds, try the following unofficial repositories.

Debian

See emacs-snapshot APT repo. The page contains installation instructions. High quality, highly recommended builds! After adding the repo install with the following command:

$ sudo apt-get install emacs-snapshot

Ubuntu

$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:cassou/emacs
$ sudo apt-get install emacs-snapshot

Gentoo

See Emacs on Gentoo page.

Arch Linux

See emacs-bzr package from AUR

Slackware

Compile and Install using emacs.SlackBuild (unofficial).

Fedora

No pre-built packages.

SusE

No pre-built packages.

Mandriva
