Dear Help

I am struggling with a problem.

When starting emacs I get a message:
Loading /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/
nxml-mode/rng-auto.el (source)...done
Loading /home/szczurek/ess-5.7.1/lisp/ess-site.el (source)...
enabling speedbar support
Loading /home/szczurek/ess-5.7.1/lisp/ess-site.el (source)...done
font-lock-turn-on-thing-lock: Symbol's function definition is void:

I added to the .emacs file a line  (load "~/ess-5.7.1/lisp/ess-site")

My emacs version is 23.1
My ess version is 5.7.1

Linux version openSUSE 11.2

I also tried to unpack the ess files to /usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp 
, but then emacs did not recognize the file "ess-site".

This error prevents display pf the opened file, please let me now how to 
fix it..

Thank you
