Hey there-

I am trying to build malabar on Ubuntu 10.10 using GNU Emacs 23.2 with built in CEDET. I get an error upon emacs trying to execute load-all.el. It seems like an issue with semantic, but I'm not sure.

Here is the full output:

Any ideas? Thanks!


I ran into this as well. The version of cedet-common packaged with ubuntu 10.10 is 1.0pre4 and eieio 1.0. I had to get rid of cedet from the package manager and install from the cedet website. I used the released tar file which gave me cedet 1.0 and eieio 1.3. This worked for me.


The cedet we are using does not appear to have this issue.
