I've installed the "emacs" package from yum, but typing emacs at the terminal doesn't launch the GUI version. I was under the impression it installed by default, and emacs -nw would be used for the terminal version.

Is there a GUI package available for Fedora 14 (GNOME)? I couldn't find "emacs-gtk" or "emacs-gnome" or any X packages with yum search emacs-.

Edit: To clarify, this is about GNU Emacs and not XEmacs.

Nevermind. I thought I'd done yum install emacs, but apparently, I had not. The version included with the base Fedora system doesn't have X support, but you can get it via the package.

# yum install emacs

Try quering your package database for xemacs

'GNU emacs' and 'xemacs' are two different programs (forked many years ago). I do not know the solution (not being a Fedora user) but I know this is not it. –  kjfletch Feb 7 '11 at 9:18
    
No, this isn't it. Does anyone actually run Emacs with a GUI in Fedora/RHEL/CentOS? –  FLW Feb 7 '11 at 16:38
