Am trying to run Latex + Emacs under DOS 5.0, and would currently seem to need long filenames. I have tried the DOSLFN driver but it prevents Emacs from running. I have 4 MB RAM in total.
Is there any smaller LFN driver? Any other solution?
408688 largest executable program size
without DOSLFN, and
396896 largest executable program size
with it, so DOSLFN only takes 11792 bytes, but still, Emacs does not run.
655360 bytes total conventional memory 640000 bytes available to MS-DOS [...] 3407872 bytes total contiguous extended memory 0 bytes available contiguous extended memory 3341312 bytes available XMS memory 64Kb bytes High Memory Area available
and I am using GNU Emacs 19.34 on an Omnibook.
I have tried running Emacs without DOSLFN and with less memory (396K), and it works. I have also managed to free more memory (460K), yet Emacs still fails to run when DOSLFN is loaded. It fails with no output.
Edit: apparently the solution is to reinstall Emacs after loading the LFN driver.
More: no, that did not work either.
