Are you sure that you downloaded the emacs25-nox11 package again ?

I will try building tmux with debug symbols, would you be able to run
it under gdb to get an idea of why it is failing ?

Im fairly confident it was the new package, I confirmed there was no
emacs binary package in /usr/pkgsrc/packages before running pkg_add and
saw the WiFi care lightup for a long time on the device as it was
fetched. I can post a md5sum or some other hash of the binary.


MD5 (/usr/pkg/bin/emacs) = 0216e50f5148bfecfd05d9043c521eaf

Is gdb in the base system? (cant check at work this second). If it is I
should be able to muddle through that, if not would you mind building

If you installed the comp tarball then you will have gdb.

I have put a debug build of tmux at:


I can confirm the debug build fails too, although I can't actually get it running in GDB. Every time I issue a "run" to gdb I get a "ptrace: No such proccess." I can succesfully backtrace emacs though. (Assuming we determine I am not using the old binary). Can you confirm if the MD5 sum matches the newer build?

Sorry on the delay on getting around to this. I had some real life constraints that kept getting in the way of sitting down with the Jornada. Thanks for all your help so far.
