7.2.2 Unpacking the CD-ROM files

To unpack the CD-ROM files:

  1. Mount the CD-ROM in your drive.
  2. Search the subdirectories of the mount point to find the tar files.
  3. Change directory to your installation directory (we recommend /usr/lib/lispworks/ , which you may need to create) and decide which tar files you need.
  4. Use the following command to unpack each tar file:
% tar -xof filename

The LispWorks image file can be found at top level in the installation directory, named according to the operating system, platform, and LispWorks version number, as follows:

lispworks-< version number >-< OS code >

Thus, an image named lispworks-6-1-0-hp-pa11 would be a LispWorks 6.1 image for use on an HP PA machine running HP-UX 11.
