Simply install from cvs, remove all other references for cedet. Follow
the instructions in the INSTALL file. Doesn't work - I will double check
I didnt screw up later when I have time. It is just a documentation
issue as detailed above I think.

I found out what it was for me - it was a clash with rdictcc. Toolbar
popups are relatively useless in emacs 22 that I use anyway since you
cant select with the toolbar. I do the "Inline" completion just fine.

I dont want to be a "whiner" but the CEDET page really needs pruning. It
is really confusing - too many old versions, too much confusion betwene
cedet versions and semantic, too man pre-release v debug versions, too
many sets of instructions for different version IMO. Keep it all in the
INSTALL file in the tar files themselves would be my sage advice :-;
Many thanks for the reply.
