I'm running Emacs 23 in Debian Squeeze.
~/.emacs does not contain any
I launch Emacs and enter
C-h v server-mode, which returns
nil, as no server is running. I then enter
M-x start-server, which starts an Emacs server in the running instance of Emacs.
However, the variable
server-mode is still
nil when I check it again. Only after running
M-x server-mode, does variable
server-mode get a value of
t. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
Server-mode works fine after entering
start-server; I can use
emacsclient to open a file in the Emacs server. However, I wanted to use variable
server-mode in the mode-line to indicate if the server is running, but if starting the server with
start-server does not change the value of
server-mode, this will not work as expected.
