New alpha available

There's a new alpha available for your testing pleasure. You can try it
out by using the directions here:

  http://blog.quicklisp.org/2014/01/a-dist-for-testing.html

This is very similar to the final December Quicklisp dist update, which
will be out in the next few days.

last update broke slime support in mlisp


Any idea? The problem is at the allegro.lisp file. How can I use the a version of slime keeping my quicklisp dist updated?

Please make setting up Quicklisp on a secondary Lisp implementation more friendly to new users

TL;DR:

My suggestions:
- Please make `(quicklisp-quickstart:install)` show a simple message instead of throw an error
- Please show the suggestion of using `(ql:add-to-init-file)` after completion of either `(quicklisp-quickstart:install)` or `(load "quicklisp/setup.lisp")`.

The current procedure for setting up a fresh installation of Quicklisp:
- download "quicklisp.lisp" from the website
* (load "quicklisp.lisp")
* (quicklisp-quickstart:install)

helpfully suggests the user to use:
* (ql:add-to-init-file)

to load Quicklisp automatically the next time s/he starts their Lisp.

However, when Quicklisp is already installed using one Lisp implementation, and the user tries to use the above procedure while running a different Lisp implementation, after the step:
* (quicklisp-quickstart:install)

the user gets an error, like (using CCL as an example):
? (quicklisp-quickstart:install)
> Error: Quicklisp has already been installed. Load #P"/home/miki/quicklisp/setup.lisp" instead.
> While executing: QUICKLISP-QUICKSTART:INSTALL, in process listener(1).
> Type :POP to abort, :R for a list of available restarts.
> Type :? for other options.
Lisp signals Error: Quicklisp has already been installed. Load #P"/home/miki/quicklisp/setup.lisp" instead

and the user gets thrown into the debugger, which may be unfamiliar (i.e. depending on the verbosity of the particular Lisp's debugger, it may not be obvious that there is a simple restart which loads the needed file).

After (if?) the user manages to exit to the top-level and uses:
* (load "/path/to/quicklisp/setup.lisp")

s/he no longer receives the suggestion to use `(ql:add-to-init-file)` to setup Quicklisp on every session, and may have to go look for documentation elsewhere on how to do this.

Re: Behind proxy with authentication

What are some proxys that i can use to get on facebook while at school?

On Wednesday, October 27, 2010 10:30:23 AM UTC-4, Elena wrote:
Hello,

according to the FAQ, you can use QuickLisp behind a proxy by means of
the :proxy option of quicklisp-quickstart:install.  However, I'm
behind a proxy which requires authentication.  If I try to pass my
credentials along the proxy address, like this:

http://user:password <at> address:port

QuickLisp bails out:

_____ BEGIN OF ERROR MESSAGE
Error: Unexpected status for #<QLQS-HTTP::URL "http://
beta.quicklisp.org/quickstart/asdf.lisp">: 407
  1 (abort) Return to level 0.
  2 Return to top loop level 0.

Type :b for backtrace or :c <option number> to proceed.
Type :bug-form "<subject>" for a bug report template or :? for other
options.
_____ END OF ERROR MESSAGE

I think "407" should mean HTTP Error 407, that is "Proxy
authentication required".

Software:
- LispWorks Personal 6.0
- Windows XP SP3

Any help?

Thanks.

New alpha available

I'm hoping to publish the September Quicklisp update this weekend. To
help with testing it, I've just published an alpha version that is very
similar to the final release. See
http://blog.quicklisp.org/2014/01/a-dist-for-testing.html for info about
how to try out the alpha.

Thanks,
Zach

SBCL failed to find TRUENAME

I've set up a local-project directory cs325 with cs325.asd and it seems to work in both Allegro 9 and Lispworks 6 Personal on my Windows 8 machine. But when I run SBCL from the command shell, I get failed to find TRUENAME for CS325. Here's what where-is-system says

SBCL:

* (ql:where-is-system "cs325")

debugger invoked on a SB-INT:SIMPLE-FILE-ERROR in thread
#<THREAD "main thread" RUNNING {24086821}>:
  Failed to find the TRUENAME of c:\Users\riesbeck\quicklisp\local-projects\cs32
:\cs325.asd
    The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

Allegro:

CS325-USER(1): (ql:where-is-system "cs325")
#P"C:\\Users\\riesbeck\\quicklisp\\local-projects\\cs325\\"

Lispworks:

CL-USER 1 > (ql:where-is-system "cs325")
#P"C:/Users/riesbeck/quicklisp/local-projects/cs325/"

Ideas?

quicklisp directory structure: why not place local distributions under quicklisp/dists/local-projects?

This is a comment/question/suggestion - definitely not a complaint.

The recommended practice is to place local asdf systems under quicklisp/local-projects.  To me it would be more logical to place it under quicklisp/dists/local-projects.

Just looking at the directory structure (I did not look into quicklisp code), dists contains various quicklisp distribution channels, the only one being quicklisp.

Off-course, if all distributions reside in quicklisp/dists, there should be a configuration file to specify in what order they are to be searched.

And off-course+1, I can probably place my asdf systems in that directory, and configure asdf to look there (did not try that yet).

Another alpha to try

I've published an alpha dist update. It's the first update from a new
build server I'm trying. I think it is doing a fine job and packaging
everything up properly, but it would help Quicklisp dist quality if you
had a chance to look it over and try installing and testing your
favorite stuff from the alpha dist over the next few days.

http://blog.quicklisp.org/2014/01/a-dist-for-testing.html has some info
if you're not familiar with the alpha dist setup.

Thanks,
Zach

Re: decoding error on stream while quickloading stefil

Thanks Simon for sharing! I had the same issue and your solution worked just fine!
