This bug currently prevents me switching to 24.4:


Is there a workaround to make both evil and M-x work in 24.4?

  • Use the development version.

  • Of emacs or evil? Or both? Why not post as an answer? Commented Mar 14, 2015 at 20:18
  • The comment thread of that issue tells you what exactly goes wrong and what to update, I figured it wouldn't need a more detailed answer than that.

  • That's odd -- when I looked earlier at the comment thread of the issue I could have sworn the first comment had a response explaining that the bug had come back. Anyway, thanks. I'm going to add my own answer anyway, since collating comments on obscure bug trackers into quick answers to common problems is something SE does well :-) Commented Mar 14, 2015 at 20:41

As recommended in the bug comments, I installed from melpa.org and was no longer able to reproduce the bug with evil-20150313.1208
