Re: Gnus w/ w3m stoped working

I Cc this message to the emacs-w3m mailing list.  You can read
the list in the gmane.emacs.w3m newsgroup as well.

I'm not familiar with Cygwin and don't know how to build w3m 0.5
in that environment.  Anyone?

The error you encountered is the case where the w3m executable
is not found in the directories which is specified by the
`exec-path' Lisp variable.  It normally inherits the value of
the PATH environment variable when Emacs starts.  So, you may
want to check the value, or to specify the `w3m-command'
variable explicitly in the ~/.emacs file with the absolute path
name of the w3m executable as follows:

(setq w3m-command "c:/cygwin/usr/local/bin/w3m.exe")
