Hi experts, I ve got a problem installing xemacs via rpm under redhat 7.1.
Each time I m taking a version, I have a dependencie error. There are also conflicts with the emacs version installed on my laptop.
Does anyone know how to bypass or resolve in a simple way those kind of problems.
Thanks in advance.

depenency you can't get around, just install the packages needed.  if you get a conflict AND you are positive you would like to install anyway, use this
"rpm -Uvh --replacefiles --force package.rpm"
