1. Emacs cvs CD copy installation problems (was: Emacs CVS 21.3.50)

2. cvs-emacs (21.3.50) newbie questions


I have 2 questions about using CVS-Emacs:

1. Since my customization files have grown over the years I would like
to start a second branch for my ~/.emacs file while still being able
to use Emacs 21.2 with the old config-files (Obviously many things
have changed.. judging from the size of the backtrace).

How do I tell the 'new' Emacs to use a different start-file
(e.g. ~/.cvsemacs)?

Or maybe the better question: how do you guys handle the problem
between different versions?

2. I had no problem installing CVS-Gnus 5.10 to work with my 'old'
Emacs. How do I get the new Gnus working with the new Emacs?
