    so every time i start emacs, the buffer splits into two and outputs the error:
    Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-error "Cannot open load file" "cua-base")
    require(cua-base)
    mapc(require (cua-base))
    custom-set-variables((cua-mode nil nil (cua-base)) (display-battery-mode nil)$
    eval-buffer(#<buffer *load*> nil "~/.emacs" nil t)
    load-with-code-conversion("/Users/vinse/.emacs" "~/.emacs" t t)
    load("~/.emacs" t t)
    #[nil "^H\205\227^@ \306=\203^Q^@\307^H\310Q\2025^@ \311=\203'^@\312\307\31$
    command-line()
    normal-top-level()

    anybody encounter the same problem before? how do i fix this?

    It might be a messed-up ~/.emacs file , try mv ~/.emacs ~/.emacs-save, starting again, and seeing if it goes away.
