I'm attempting to install the latest Jabberwocky on my
new 12" PowerBook. My install will not complete due to
an error having to do with building and/or installing
files related to GCL support.
I have installed the latest releases of GCL (2.6.3),
CMUCL (19a+ Darwin/Exp 2004-07-25-090), SBCL (0.8.12),
and CLISP (2.29-13). My machine is fully up-to-date
(OS X 10.3.4, Java 1.4.2, XCode 1.5 beta).
As usual, I run installbin from the directory
/usr/local/Jabberwocky-2.0.28/. I ask for the
installer to setup support for all of the above
compilers and install in the default locations. My
entire /usr/local hierarchy is owned by me, not root.
I run the installer as me, not root; but if I run it as
root I get the same error message.
The error message that I received is seen in a model
popup window with an "OK" button. The error message is:
Error copying gcl/sbcl.o to /usr/local/Jabberwocky/gcl
gcl/sbcl.o (No such file or directory)
The resulting install is incomplete. In particular,
/usr/local/bin/Jabberwocky is not executable.
P.S. You need a bug category "Installer" and you need
to clean up your "Group" entries as well.
