I know support for quicklisp is not expected of this forum, but in case someone has found a fix, I would appreciate the insight.


I installed quicklisp without any problem. But when I try to install "drakma" library (via console), I am getting this error:


? (ql:quickload "drakma")
To load "drakma":
  Load 1 ASDF system:

Indeed, this is not a Opusmodus issue.



I don't see any error when loading 'drama'.

You need to install the CCL first in your home directory.



;;; CCL path
(setf (logical-pathname-translations "ccl") '((#P"ccl:**;*.*" #P"/Users/opusmodus/ccl/**/*.*")))

;;; Quicklisp Setup
(let ((quicklisp-init
       (merge-pathnames "quicklisp/setup.lisp"
  (when (probe-file quicklisp-init)
    (load quicklisp-init)))


Maybe this helps:

Thanks very much.


Obviously I had not read the quick lisp-related posts fully. I did the following and it works now:

1) Created a directory "ccl" under my user name directory

2) cd to that directory

3) svn co http://svn.clozure.com/publicsvn/openmcl//release/1.11/darwin-x86-headers64

4) In the file "Quicklisp Start.lisp" located under "~/Opusmodus/Extensions" folder, I uncommented and modified the following line:

(setf (logical-pathname-translations "ccl") '((#P"ccl:**;*.*" #P"/Users/Rangarajan/ccl/**/*.*")))


That is it.
