I'm using Carbon Emacs I have the lines

(setq default-frame-alist '((width . 148)
    (height . 54)))
(setq initial-frame-alist '((top . 10)
    (left . 230)))

in my .emacs, which make a nice big Emacs frame on the right side of the screen... eventually. As Emacs starts up, the frame appears first on the left side of the screen, then it shrinks a little, then it shrinks some more, then it finally goes to the position and dimensions I specified. What I would like to know is where those other position/dimensions are specified, and whether I can change them. I'm trying to eliminate all of that jumping around of the frame.

Does Carbon support X resources?  If so, you could specify those frame

parameters in your ~/.Xdefaults file:

emacs.geometry: 148x54+230+10

Or you could specify the geometry on the command line:

        emacs --geometry=148x54+230+10
        emacs --xrm=emacs.geometry:148x54+230+10
