Upgrading to Emacs 24.5

leave a comment »

I previously wrote a post about switching from Carbon Emacs to Gnu Emacs. Upgrading is pretty simple now, so I thought I’d record the procedure for installing Emacs from source on OSX for future reference:

  1. Go here and click on a mirror link
  2. Download the appropriate file, e.g. emacs-24.5.tar.gz
  3. tar xzf emacs-24.5.tar.gz
  4. cd emacs-24.5
  5. ./configure –with-ns
  6. make install
  7. drag nextstep/Emacs.app to the Applications directory

Emacs is still awesome!
