It seems that mode is no longer functional (tested with emacs 23.4 & 24.3) -> M-x load-file /usr/pkg/share/emacs/site-lisp/esh-mode.el -> "Symbol's value as variable is void: shared-lisp-mode-map" Even worse: That file shadows eshell, bundled with emacs, so that starting eshell on a system where package esh is installed will result in the error above. See also: * https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=425780 (Gentoo had the same problem and fixed it) * http://gnats.netbsd.org/cgi-bin/query-pr-single.pl?number=36796 Seems to be the same problem, but the reporter fixed it by deleting the file manually. >How-To-Repeat: 1.) Install package esh 2.) Start emacs 3.) M-x eshell >Fix: Several Options AFAICT: A) The mode seems no longer functional. Remove it from the package. B) Instead (provide 'esh), use (provide 'esh-mode) or similar so that it no longer conflicts with eshell. C) If you want to ship the file (although it is broken) and don't want to modify it, put it someplace outside the emacs load-path. I don't know netbsd well enough so far, in debian, that would probably be /usr/share/doc/esh-mode/examples/ .
