I'm trying to make some changes to JDE, but I'm running into problems just using emacs. I'm using cygwin on Windows NT.
I was able to get the emacs that comes with cygwin to run using XWin as an X server. However, I think I recall that that version doesn't interface well with JDE. In particular, the build file has quoting issues when execing emacs. If I fix that, it complains that it can't load a window's style path.
I've also tried using the version from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/windows/. That fails to create a window and just hangs at the command prompt.
I managed to get this working on my work computer years ago with a non-cygwin version, but I can't seem to get it to work on my home laptop (which is where I can access the JDE svn repository.)
What configuration are people using? Any suggestions on what I can try to figure out the problems?
