[Openmcl-devel] Using OpenMCL with Aquamacs + Slime doesn't work

I don't use Aquamacs or Slime regularly, but I just downloaded what
seemed to be the latest Aquamacs (1.7) from aquamacs.org, did

M-: (setq inferior-lisp-program "/path/to/ccl64")


M-x slime

, and it told me that it had no idea what slime was.  I looked
around inside the application bundle and didn't see anything
that looked like it was part of slime, which suggests that
Aquamacs is (no longer ?) bundling slime.

Daniel's message (which arrived as I was typing this) suggests
that he uses a slime checked out from the slime project's CVS
(or whatever they use) tree.

If you're still getting the same error you were getting before
and slime isn't part of Aquamacs, that suggests that you still
have an old (and perhaps buggy) version of slime on Aquamacs'
load path somewhere. IIRC, you may be able to do something like

M-x find-load-file <return> slime <return>

to have Emacs tell you where it's finding the slime that it's
