NextPrevUpTopContentsIndex Testing the newly saved image

You should now test the new LispWorks image. To test a configured version of LispWorks, do the following:

  1. Change directory out of the installation directory.
  2. Run the new image.
  3. Test the load-on-demand system. Type:
  4. CL-USER 1 > (inspect 1)

    Before information about the fixnum 1 is printed, the system should load the inspector from the load-on-demand directory.

  5. Next, test the ability of the system to interface to a local X server. If necessary, start an X server either on the local machine or on a machine networked to it. Type:
CL-USER 2 > (env:start-environment :display " serverhostname ")

Where serverhostname is the name of the machine running the X server. The window-based environment should now initialize--during initialization an X window displaying a copyright notice will appear on the screen.

You can work through some of the examples in the LispWorks User Guide to check further that the configured image has successfully built.
