"Lispy is a library manager for Common Lisp, written in Common Lisp. All of its dependencies except for GPG (with which signed maps and releases are verified) are written in portable Common Lisp. With this approach you should only need a Lisp implementation installed to get started. The Lispy project has two goals:
- Implement an easy to use, portable library manager.
- Provide a wealth of ready to install libraries."

All was well but I decided to also get the latest from sbcl (1.0.34) and slime as well.
Installing sbcl was very straight forward and I had no issues. Installing slime however was a pain. I got it from the cvs and I set it up just like the getting started page suggested but I could not get to the slime-repl buffer. So after searching the page for known issue I found this:
The REPL moved to a contrib. Instead of (slime-setup), place (slime-setup '(slime-fancy slime-asdf)) into your ~/.emacs.
So I ended up with a different .emacs file then before:
(add-to-list 'load-path "your-path-to-slime") (require 'slime) (add-hook 'lisp-mode-hook (lambda () (slime-mode t))) (add-hook 'inferior-lisp-mode-hook (lambda () (inferior-slime-mode t))) (setq inferior-lisp-program "sbcl") (slime-setup '(slime-fancy slime-asdf))
Next post I will tell my journey to get a web site running on the good old hunchentoot.
