I've installed Xemacs from the default oss-repo.

When starting Xemacs I get the following error:

Can't initialize XIM: XCreateIC failed

I should note that Japanese Input is installed (by adding language support in Yast)

Apparently the problem occurred before in 10.1 (see XIM and SCIM problems on SuSE 10.1 ) though seems that it had not been resolved there. I couldn't find other solutions either.

Xemacs seems to be working anyway (I am not using it to input Japanese characters) still though, it is annoying.

Also I would like to avoid to compile Xemacs from source esp. since I think suse has done some distribution-specific patches...
