NextPrevUpTopContentsIndex Where LispWorks looks for keyfiles

The image looks for a valid keyfile in the following places, in order:

The directory config is an indirect subdirectory of the directory specified by the LispWorks variable *lispworks-directory* . Note that until you have configured and saved your image, as described later in this section, this variable is set to /usr/lib/lispworks . When starting the generic image, you must therefore ensure that the keyfile is either in your current directory or in /usr/lib/lispworks/lib/6-1-0-0/config .

If you try to run LispWorks without a valid key, a message will be printed reporting that no valid key was found.
