Changes since 1.5: +6 -0 lines
Add a paragraph to INSTALL detailing how to get McCLIM and CLX,
written by Xan on #lisp.
1 afuchs 1.6 *Note*: Climacs depends on McCLIM, a graphic toolkit for Common Lisp
2     (http://www.cliki.net/McCLIM) and CLX, a low level, Xlib-like library
3     on top of which McCLIM is built (http://www.cliki.net/CLX). Make sure
4     these are properly installed on your system before attempting to install
5     Climacs.
6    
7 strandh 1.2 Install instructions for Climacs. We assume that if you have gotten
8     this far, it means that you have either extracted a tar file with
9     everything in it, or checked out the files from some CVS repository.
10     If your directory contains a Flexichain subdirectory, skip directly to
11     paragraph 1 below. Otherwise start at paragraph 0.
12    
13     0. You need to check out the Flexichain module from the Gsharp project
14     on common-lisp.net. If you are a member of that project, you can
15     do this:
16    
17     export CVS_RSH=ssh
18     cvs -z3 -d :ext:<username>@common-lisp.net:/project/gsharp/cvsroot co Flexichain
19    
20     If you are not a member, here is how you do it:
21    
22     cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@common-lisp.net:/project/gsharp/cvsroot login
23     <enter anonymous as password>
24     cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anonymous@common-lisp.net:/project/gsharp/cvsroot co Flexichain
25    
26 strandh 1.1 1. Start Lisp either from the shell or from Emacs
27    
28     2. (load "climacs.asd")
29    
30     This command will load the system definition file containing system
31     definitions both for ASDF and for MK:DEFSYSTEM.
32    
33     3. (asdf:operate 'asdf:load-op :climacs)
34    
35     This command will compile and load the source files in the right
36     order.
37    
38     4. (climacs-gui::climacs)
39    
40     Start the Climacs editor.
41    
42 rstrandh 1.4 Finally, please notice that as we develop Climacs, we occasionally
43     find bugs in McCLIM, or ask for functionality of McCLIM that can be
44     useful to us.
45    
46 afuchs 1.5 For that reason, Climacs often depends on very fresh CVS versions of
47 rstrandh 1.4 McCLIM. If you discover a bug, please try to install a new version of
48 afuchs 1.5 McCLIM before looking to hard for any other reasons.
