autorebase and user-installed dynamic objects
Sat Sep 18 22:51:31 GMT 2021
In preparation for using emacs's new native compilation feature, I've been
experimenting with using autorebase to rebase the *.eln files created in a
user's home directory. As a start, I created a file
containing the line
I also modified /usr/bin/rebaseall and /usr/bin/rebaselst so that they would
recognize 'eln' as a suffix of a file needing to be rebased. I then ran setup
and let it do its autorebase, but the *.eln files didn't get rebased.
Looking into /usr/bin/rebaselst, I think I see the problem. The function
rebase_user() greps the file /var/lib/rebase/user.d/kbrown for the relevant
suffixes, instead of looking for files in /home/kbrown/.emacs.d/eln-cache.
Shouldn't rebase_user use a variable "userLocs" analogous to the variable
"dynLocs" used by rebase_dyn()? Or am I completely misunderstanding how this is
supposed to work?
