Title: Running the LispWorks IDE or CAPI on FreeBSD 7

ID: 17058


Product: LispWorks for FreeBSD
Version: 5.0, 5.1
OS: FreeBSD

Description:
If you run the LispWorks IDE or a CAPI application on FreeBSD 7, the GUI might hang and you might see errors such as this in the console:

X IO Error (35) on display #<X-LIBRARY:DISPLAY "heap:0.0" = #x0812B800>"

This occurs because LispWorks is a FreeBSD 5 application and CAPI depends on the X11 libraries that are not part of the compat5x package on FreeBSD 7.

To overcome this, you need to install suitable X11 libraries from an older version of FreeBSD. This can be done by downloading

ftp://ftp.lispworks.com/pub/software_tools/downloads/extras/FreeBSD/compatXm-6.3_1.tgz

and installing it using

pkg_add compatXm-6.3_1.tgz

Then set the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /usr/local/lib/compatX11 before running LispWorks.
