Description Geoff Cant (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-09-30 04:24:09 UTC
The new r1 ebuild for cmucl-bin-18e doesn't symlink the dist lisp core to /usr/lib/cmucl/lisp.core - this results in /usr/bin/lisp failing to run if you don't specify a -core. It also means that the register-common-lisp-implementation cmucl line in the postinst won't be able to run (so no asdf if you subsequently do symlink a lisp.core until you register with clc again).

Fix: change the src_install section to add a symlink from /usr/lib/cmucl/lib/lisp-dist.core to /usr/lib/cmucl/lisp.core

Comment 2 Matthew Kennedy (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-10-01 20:20:11 UTC
Hi Geoff, I think that the lisp.core is made by loading the clc into lisp-dist.core
and then dumping. this should be done in the pkg_postinst with register-common-lisp-implementation.
 The only explantion I can think of at the moment, is that inetd was not
running at the time you emerged cmucl-bin.

Perhaps this was the case on your install?  Let me know either way...
Comment 3 Geoff Cant (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-10-01 22:14:31 UTC
Ok, my first build must have just broken then - if I remerge it now, it all
installs fine. Inetd was running when I merged it last time, the package
just didn't install a lisp.core for some reason.

No problems now.
