Cant update packages via tools -> packages -> list and install

Post by stelad0 » Wed, 25 May 2005 23:03:25


n win xp, xemacs 21.4.13 I cant update packages automatically.

ftp, and xemacs along with it, seems to hang from some point on.

Below is the content from the ftp-buffer and the backtrace.

Any help/advice/consolation apreciated.

Thanks in advance

Steen

Hi Steen, which ftp prgram are you using?

I am using Windows ftp, even though I have cygwin installed.

I just renamed
c:\cygwin\bin\ftp.exe
to
c:\cygwin\bin\ftp.exe.orig
to accomplish this, when I couldn't get that one to work.

Hope this helps,

Adrian

Just FYI, I had this same problem (on a linux pda actually), and
searching the web revealed a few other examples but no solution (it
was even reported as a bug in XEmacs)

As it turned out my ftp program was the culprit as it wasn't allowing
xemacs full control. As soon as I installed a real ftp client (not
just a gui rendition) the problem disappeared.

Just a thought.
