The problem I've had trying to install on Slackware[http://www.unc.edu/~adamsonj/software.html#gambit] is that the system file locations are set when gsc-comp is compiled.  Obviously gsc-comp needs the files in the installation directory, but after that the Gambit-C system should be able to find them where I've put them in my installation.  I keep a source tree in /usr/local/src for my updates, but it would be better to have a fully running system that doesn't require it.  When I've made packages in the past, I delete that source tree and then I can't load "~~/syntax-case" and other files.[[User:Trashbird1240|Trashbird1240]] 15:37, 27 June 2008 (EDT)

standard name of executable that doesn't clash with ghostscript

I'd really like the default name not to clash with ghostscript.

  • What we have now:
    • gsc, gsi
  • Proposals:
    • gamcom, gamint
    • gambit-compiler, gambit-interpreter
    • gamc, gami
    • gambc, gambi
    • gschc, gschi
    • gamschc, gamschi

DESTDIR and Runtime Files

The problem I've had trying to install on Slackware[1] is that the system file locations are set when gsc-comp is compiled. Obviously gsc-comp needs the files in the installation directory, but after that the Gambit-C system should be able to find them where I've put them in my installation. I keep a source tree in /usr/local/src for my updates, but it would be better to have a fully running system that doesn't require it. When I've made packages in the past, I delete that source tree and then I can't load "~~/syntax-case" and other files.Trashbird1240 15:37, 27 June 2008 (EDT)
