I want to update to the latest version of Org-mode to test a bug fix. I followed the instructions:
cd ~/src/ git clone https://code.orgmode.org/bzg/org-mode.git cd org-mode/ make autoloads
Then I launch emacs without initialization:
emacs -nw -q
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/src/org-mode/lisp") ;; result: ("~/src/org-mode/lisp" ...) (org-version) ;; result: "9.1.9"
which shows that it is using the built-in version, not the one from git (the compiled file
I was able to install the latest version when I filed the bug report. Then
package-list-packages would show the built-in
org package as masked by another; I can't remember how I did it and now the built-in package is not masked.
I am on
macOS 10.14.6 and
GNU Emacs 26.3 (build 1, x86_64-apple-darwin18.2.0, NS appkit-1671.20 Version 10.14.3 (Build 18D109)) of 2019-09-02.
I have tried How to update Org to latest version using package repo's / git clone in Ubuntu without success. This thread is for Ubuntu.
What is preventing my machine from using the latest version of org-mode?
