Bearing in mind that i am using the last DSL stable release from 2008...

Has anyone managed to get an Emacs or Microemacs editor running on a modest DSL setup? I have only 32 MB RAM to play with, but I suspect all Emacses should run within that...

Is it a case of doing a simple apt-get... I really want a system with full coloured syntax highlighting.

I have managed to install and run, with coloured syntax highlighting, the vi_full.dsl package, but it took a lot of messing with.

I am OK with that, but I much prefer Emacs to work with - it was the very first text editor I ever used.

I could be wrong (often the case Tongue ), but Emacs is in myDSL  Huh
