I just pick up emacs after a while with Vim. This is run on CentOS server. I ssh to the server, and start with gnu screen, and emacs ess, when I start to run R, emacs just freeze.

Here is what I did before it get freeze:

ssh servername
emacs -nw test.r
C-X 2
C-X o

the process of emacs is still running with CPU 80-90%. And there is no R process coming up.

It is fine if I run emacs without screen.

Any suggestion for getting this work?

  • Are you using a custom prompt? If so, try without the prompt. – Alex Feb 9 '19 at 18:27
