    I went to fire up emacs today and received the following message:

    PHP:
    emacschild exited with status 1
    I went ahead and cleared out my .profile file, thinking that it might have been the source of the problem, but it still returns the error.

    I searched around on Google for a bit, but didn't find much. Anyone have any ideas? I'm on a Macbook Pro Core2Duo running 10.4.9, if that helps.

    Install Fink and use XEmacs, which is better than any plain Emacs.

    I -think- it worked at one point on this machine. I'm referring to the emacs that comes with OSX. I suppose I could archive and install to try to fix it, but I'll take a look at some of the alternatives that you linked instead, since I -really- don't want to reinstall.
