Revision 1.9 - (hide annotations)
Fri Nov 24 22:52:27 2006 UTC (7 years, 4 months ago) by thenriksen
Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.8: +7 -4 lines
Updated installation instructions.
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    
11 thenriksen 1.9 0. You need to check out the flexichain project from
12 crhodes 1.8 common-lisp.net. If you are not a member of those projects, here is
13     how you do it:
14 strandh 1.2
15 crhodes 1.8 cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anonymous:anonymous@common-lisp.net:/project/flexichain/cvsroot co flexichain
16     cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anonymous:anonymous@common-lisp.net:/project/climacs/cvsroot co esa
17 strandh 1.2
18 thenriksen 1.9 Ensure that asdf can find the .asd files for these projects. Recent
19     versions of McCLIM depend on Flexichain, and thus, you might
20     already have it installed.
21 strandh 1.2
22 strandh 1.1 1. Start Lisp either from the shell or from Emacs
23    
24     2. (load "climacs.asd")
25    
26     This command will load the system definition file containing system
27     definitions both for ASDF and for MK:DEFSYSTEM.
28    
29     3. (asdf:operate 'asdf:load-op :climacs)
30    
31     This command will compile and load the source files in the right
32     order.
33    
34 thenriksen 1.9 4. (climacs:climacs)
35 strandh 1.1
36 thenriksen 1.9 Start the Climacs editor. Alternatively, try (climacs:climacs
37     :new-process t), to start Climacs in a new thread.
38 strandh 1.1
39 rstrandh 1.4 Finally, please notice that as we develop Climacs, we occasionally
40     find bugs in McCLIM, or ask for functionality of McCLIM that can be
41     useful to us.
42    
43 afuchs 1.5 For that reason, Climacs often depends on very fresh CVS versions of
44 rstrandh 1.4 McCLIM. If you discover a bug, please try to install a new version of
45 abakic 1.7 McCLIM before looking too hard for any other reasons.
