enchant-ispell script is not compatible with emacs flyspell mode
with installed enchant (+ispell)
emacs can't enter flyspell mode.

removing enchant fixes the problem

2. run emacs

если в настройках emacs flyspell-mode выключен, его можно включить 
M-x flyspell-mode

another description of this problem from

I sometimes edit XML files with Emacs, using Mandrakelinux. After
editing a file, I used to launch M-x flyspell-buffer to spellcheck the
whole buffer at once, and then, after hiding XML tags (View -> Hide
Tags), I had a great and easy view of any mispelled word.

In its latest releases, aspell has become the default spell checking
system in Mandrakelinux. For some reason, this breaks - it seems -
flyspell's behaviour for "large regions" (i.e. when the buffer is larger
than the limit set in flyspell prefs, over which a separate ispell
process is normally launched): it just returns a "Can't check region" error.
I can increase the "large region" limit or simply disable it, so that
everything is always considered to be a "small region", but the process
is very slow this way, much more than it used to be: it takes several
minutes to highlight words in a moderately sized file, around 100
seconds for a small 4 kB file.
Maybe it would be faster if I could make it ignore XML tags.

Can anyone suggest a workaround for this, or any other solution to have
a global view of all mispelled words at once, with or without Emacs?

Thanks in advance.

прошу прощения, этот комментраий попал сюда по ошибке. 
это к emacs flyspell mode вместе с aspell.
