I have a working Gnus setup for email on one machine. I am now trying to create slightly more modular setup on a second machine. When I start Gnus on the second machine, mail is read and the group buffer appears as I would expect, but if I try to enter a folder, I get the following error:
Buffer is read-only: #<buffer *Group*>
I assume this is somehow connected to the fact that I am trying to run Emacs and Gnus out of a non-standard directory (using Chemacs). Does anyone have any idea how to debug this? What variables should I have a look at?
