XSteve's stow page

I use gnu stow to install some packages from soure on my linux systems.

I installed the emacs developer version via stow on my ubuntu system

Install stow (only needed, if its not already available on your system)
sudo apt-get install stow

Stow should store the local tree at ~/prg
mkdir -p ~/prg/stow

Configure, build and install emacs in /home/stefan/prg/stow/emacs

cd ~/work/tla/emacs
./configure --prefix=/home/stefan/prg/stow/emacs
make bootstrap
make install

Create the links in the ~/prg subdirectories.
You should add ~/prg/bin to the PATH environment variable to make emacs visible for your shell.
cd ~/prg/stow
stow emacs
