Newcomer, need help with emacs dependencies & terminal swupd tab completion broken

On emacs runtime, i got a warning buffer spamming me message similar to:

gcc: fatal error: cannot execute ‘as’: execvp: No such file or directory

this problem got easily solved by installing binutils

swupd bundle-add binutils

next, when i open M-x dired i get messages:

⛔ Warning (comp): error: error invoking gcc driver
⛔ Warning (comp): /usr/share/emacs/29.1/lisp/emacs-lisp/cl-lib.el.gz: Error: Internal native compiler error

finally, not related to emacs, in terminal swupd command has broken tab completion for arguments

swupd <tab> => _init_completion: command not found

P.S. I’m confused, if emacs is installed by default, i don’t understand why not install all its run-time dependencies also.

Try :

sudo swupd bundle-add devpkg-base
sudo swupd bundle-add c-basic

Update the library paths to include the directory where is located.

For swupd bash completion, the shells bundle is probably the smallest that provides that feature.

did you mean devpkg-base? package manager did not find devpkg-dev.
also this did fix the emacs problem, thanks.

nope, this didn’t fix it for me

Oh looks like some things changed in the bash-completion package. There seems to be quite a few things that need to update including swupd.


Yes, devpkg-base, it’s adjusted. :wink:
