Re: New to Lisp and some questions

At least on Windows some older versions of sdl-mixer (not sure which, though) work slightly better. Although I have had some other problems with SBCL & sdl-mixer (can't load sound files for some reasons) that only seem to manifest on certain machines...

Re: SBCL on Windows ?

FWIW you can get 1.0.19 for Windows (which is what I'm personally using) from here http://sourceforge.net/project/showfile ... ge_id=1354 . Maybe they just forgot to update the download page..?

Re: Lisp, Windows and OpenGL

Maybe PAL (http://common-lisp.net/project/pal/ ) would work for you? It uses OpenGL and should work with CLisp. There is a simple windows demo build with SBCL at http://www.yellow-hut.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/Bermuda.zip to see how it works in practice (the Bermuda demo is not yet included with P...

Re: Your favorite implementation?

PLT Scheme. It works well on several platforms, has lots of libraries, good FFI and is in general well thought out and solid package. It is not the fastest Scheme around but I find it easier to work with than the compiling-to-c implementations. I don't much care for the DrScheme environment but mzsc...

Re: Need suggestions for most popular Scheme implementations

I think all Scheme implementations have very active and helpful mailing lists so I'm not sure if there is a point in implementation specific subforums. One general Scheme subforum should be enough. FWIW I also think same holds for Common Lisp.

Re: LispForum topic structure

I second Jaqcues suggestion about newbies subforum. Maybe called 'Getting started', it could be for newbie questions as well as general installation issues (asdf-install, does foo work with bar, where to get baz...) I also don't think fragmenting the forums to several implementation specific subforu...

Re: Failing to asdf-install cl-yacc in Windows

You could always install the library manually. Or if it has lots of dependancies copy the whole systems directory from Linux (just be sure to remove the .fasls first)
