Installation instructions for the precompiled binaries. It's
important that you read this before unpacking the executables.
This contains the architecture-independent parts of the installation
tree. If you intend to build XEmacs from scratch, you do not need
this file: it contains a subset of the files included in
xemacs-19.16.tar.gz but arranged in a different directory structure
(the files are arranged as an installation tree rather than a build
tree.) If you intend to install the precompiled binaries, you need

There are binary kits for various platforms, including Linux RPMs.
Don't forget to set "binary" mode when transferring these files. Unpack them
with some variation of the command
"gunzip -c xemacs-20.0.tar.gz | tar -pvxf -".

Please use the newsgroups instead of mailing directly to the

Crashes should be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org. When reporting a
crash, please read carefully the information in part II of the XEmacs

flag so the stack back trace is meaningful.
Do not send messages about problems with XEmacs to the GNU Emacs
newsgroups and mailing lists (email@example.com,
firstname.lastname@example.org, gnu.emacs.help, gnu.emacs.bug, et cetera)
unless you are sure that the problem you are reporting is a problem with
both versions of Emacs.
