http://unix.stackexchange.com – I'm trying to install SLIME on Fedora 17 so that I can do some lisp. Here is what I downloaded: http://www.common-lisp.net/project/slime/#downloading The CVS Snapshot link. I have a .emacs file: (add-to-list 'load-path "~/programming/slime/slime-2012-09-18") (setq inferior-lisp-program "/usr/local/sbcl") (require 'slime) (slime-setup) When I start emacs --debug-init, I get the following message: Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-error "Cannot open load file" "slime") require(slime) eval-buffer(# nil "/home/sam/.emacs.el" nil t) ; Reading at buffer position 159 load-with-code-con (HowTos)
