[Ecls-list] Emacs + SLIME + ECL

CVS HEAD doesn't work for me at all, I'm afraid, either with SBCL,
CLISP, or ECL.  I checked SLIME out of CVS today (2009-08-04) per the
instructions here (http://common-lisp.net/project/slime/) and get the
following output in *inferior-lisp* when using it with, say, SBCL.
Evidently, it can't find swank-loader.lisp.

(progn (load "/usr/share/common-lisp/source/slime/swank-loader.lisp" :verbose t) (funcall (read-from-string "swank-loader:init")) (funcall (read-from-string "swank:start-server") "/tmp/slime.11332" :coding-system "iso-latin-1-unix"))

This is SBCL 1.0.18.debian, an implementation of ANSI Common Lisp.
More information about SBCL is available at <http://www.sbcl.org/>.

Type HELP for debugger help, or (SB-EXT:QUIT) to exit from SBCL.
