Memory fault on Slime startup

Postby sebastien_k » Fri May 29, 2009 5:08 pm

I'm trying to start Slime in Emacs, but i get an error:
memory fault
[Condition of type SB-KERNEL::MEMORY-FAULT-ERROR]

(full output is here: http://pastebin.com/f4ca8dbda)
I tried both console Emacs 22, which was installed by default in my Ubuntu 8.10, and the latest Emacs 23.0.0.1 with GUI, so it seems like it's not a problem of Emacs itself. But it also is not a problem of Slime, because i can run slime directly:
Code: Select all
> cd /usr/share/common-lisp/source/slime
> sbcl
* (require 'asdf)
* (push #p"." asdf:*central-registry*)
* (asdf:oos 'asdf:load-op :swank)
* (in-package :swank)
* (create-server :port 9999 :style :spawn :dont-close t)


Ubuntu 8.10
SBCL 1:0.9.16.0-1
Emacs 22
Slime latest from CVS

I seem to recall there being a bug in an older version of SBCL. Maybe you're using a version with a problem? 1.0.9 is edging up on two years out of date. See if a recent version works better.

Generally, you're best off using a recent SBCL along with a recent SLIME. The two are sometimes dependent on each other.

Yes, i used sbcl 1.0.28 and that worked perfectly well. (In fact, i had installed latest sbcl in another path then previous, but forgot to make changes in ~/.emacs/init.el).
Thanks a lot.
