Recovering the laptop

Notes as a consequence of rebuilding my hard disk this week.

1. How to get emacs (Windows) to display pdf files

This was the second time I've done this, working from totally inadequate hints out in google land. I don't want to have to calculate it ever again.

a) Install libpng and zlib from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages.html
b) Copy libpng12.dll and zlib1.dll from c:/Program Files/GnuWin32/bin/ into the Emacs bin directory
c) Install ghostscript from http://www.ghostscript.com/download/gsdnld.html
d) Copy gswin32c.exe from c:/Program Files/gs/gs9.04/bin to gs.exe in the Emacs bin directory

Simple when you know how!

2. Problems with mod_lisp

 Apache won't start if http.conf includes:

  LoadModule lisp_module modules/mod_lisp2.so

If it does, I get the following error message:

 httpd.exe: Syntax error on line 130 of C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/modules/mod_lisp2.so into server: This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this  problem.

Have anyone seen anything like this before?

(I was planning to ask this question to lispweb, but the list appears to have gone away.)
