Details

Updated emacs packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 6.

GNU Emacs is a powerful, customizable, self-documenting text editor. It provides
special code editing features, a scripting language (elisp), and the capability
to read e-mail and news.

This update fixes the following bug:

* In ispell mode, Emacs used the spell checkers in the following order: Ispell,
Aspell, and Hunspell. However, Ispell is no longer available and Aspell does not
have any dictionaries installed by default. Consequently, because Emacs found
Aspell before the default Hunspell, the spell check failed and Emacs reported
the following error message:

ispell-init-process: Error: No word lists can be found for the language
"en_US".

With this update, Emacs has been modified to look for the spell checkers in the
following order: Hunspell, Aspell, and Ispell. This ensures that Hunspell is
used by default when it is available. (BZ#796053)

All users of emacs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.
