Hi, this is nice! However it seems this Emacs has been built without modules support, i.e. it crashes when trying to use vterm.

Hello and thanks for the feedback. The spec has --with-modules enabled in the config step, see emacs-pgtk-nativecomp-copr/emacs.spec at master · A6GibKm/emacs-pgtk-nativecomp-copr · GitHub. Maybe there is something else it is missing? or maybe there is a bug upstream?

I installed this package yesterday. it works well.

vterm also works. make sure you install relevant libraries (the ones listed on the vterm github page). I had to do this when installing ubuntu on wsl if memory serves. in any case, I have found no problems .

I should mention that Emacs has some lag in Gnome but none on Sway. I like them both, but it seems I’ll have to use Sway for its speed. no big deal. like I said, I like them both.
