Hello List Members

After my posting regarding AUC-TeX I found the AUC-TeX and 
Preview-LaTeX rpm's on the net. I downloaded them and Installed 

While installing the Preview-LaTeX-Xemacs ***.rpm the installation 
asked for some CD - I supplied the PCQ CDs but it did not 
recognise and I have to stop the installation abruptly.

The Preview-LaTeX-emacs *** installed. The "Preview" item is 
appearing on the menu bar in emacs (tty based). But when I tried 
to view it the following message is coming:

"Display geometry unavailable: Wrong type argument: 
number-or-marker-p, nil".

In the windows - (gnome) the following is the last line in C-c C-` 
- "Preview-LaTeX exited abnormally with code 1"

When I tried to view the document - it is showing only the 
equations. It is not able to show the entire document or the 
environments like - enumerate etc. Yes, it is showing the - 
"References" for \thebibliography!?

I think I don't have the XEmacs in my machine, because, today 
while going through the RPM package installed the XEmacs is 
unmarked. I tried to install it - but the same thing repeated - it 
is asking for some CD for some program.

Any clues??

Thanking you,

D. Venu Gopal
