Emacs 24 rpm ?

Hi guys,
I'm very new in the fedora world, so pleas excused me for the banality of my question.

I'm looking for the rpm of emacs24 but I can't find it, its possible that nobody has yet done it ?

I've also tried to install emacs24 from source, but I have some little problem which the dependencies, there is any way to know what packages install ?

I tried to "grep" the configure command to see what package I don't have installed, but the name of the package are not correct (i'm pretty sure that are the name of the debian package), how can I solve ?

Thanks you, and sorry for my English...

He probably got it from one of the Emacs source repositories, like this one: http://savannah.gnu.org/bzr/?group=emacs

As far as the dependencies, you could install the yum-utils package and then run this:
Code:
yum-builddep emacs
That will show you everything needed to build emacs from source and ask if you want to install those dependencies. Even though it's for the Fedora emacs source package (23.3 as of F16), it should still work for the generic emacs 24.x source. For example, with those dependencies installed I was able to build emacs 24.0.91 like this:
Code:
$ bzr branch bzr://bzr.savannah.gnu.org/emacs/trunk
$ cd trunk
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make
It took about 34 minutes to compile, but it worked.

So, maybe the most safe procedure to follow is install emacs23 and then compile emacs24... ?

You could run "yum-builddep emacs" without actually installing the Fedora emacs package; all it will do is install the dependencies for building. But there's nothing wrong with having multiple versions of emacs installed. The more emacs the better!
