Updated emacs packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
GNU Emacs is a powerful, customizable, self-documenting text editor. It provides special code editing features, a scripting language (elisp), and the capability to read email and news.

Bug Fix

The Lucida Typewriter and Lucida Console fonts were not usable with Emacs 23.1 in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Consequently, the following error message was displayed in the Messages buffer: "set-face-attribute: Font not available". With this update, no error message is displayed in this scenario and the selected font can be used to display the buffer contents.
Users of emacs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
