Do take your pick
Learn X in Y minutes -
lend me your arms, fast as thunderbolts, for a pillow on my journey.
If the environment was a bank, would it be too big to fail
so long; and thanks for all the pi

Code: Select all

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ racket --version
Welcome to Racket v5.2.1.
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ drracket --version
Seg fault (internal error) at 0x1142398
SIGSEGV SEGV_ACCERR SI_CODE 2 fault on 0x1142398
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ uname -a
Linux raspberrypi 3.6.11+ #538 PREEMPT Fri Aug 30 20:42:08 BST 2013 armv6l GNU/Linux
pi@raspberrypi ~ $
(Same result if I simply run 'drracket')

This is via an ssh session from a WinXP machine. X-forwarding is set, and Xming is running as the Xserver on the PC. Invoking IDLE from the same bash shell correctly displays the basic idle ide window on the PC, so I'm confident the X-windows support between RPi and WinXP is functional.

[I don't have any personal requirement to run Racket or its IDE, I'm just helping with debugging information.]

The Debian version (5.3.4) runs but is painfully slow at starting (think 10 minutes). That's using
drracket on the Pi with X forwarded to an SSH session on my laptop.

i'm quite happy just using the leafpad text editor that comes with Occidentals for the time being but for the record.
If i type in racket in the terminal screen i can enter (if thats the correct term?) the language in the same way if i was to enter clisp (i have also installed common lisp)
next if i enter (exit) it take sme back to the pi@raspberrypi ~$ promt

if i try to enter drracket which i guess should start the complete IDE then i get
Seg fault (internal error) at 0x17793b0
SIGSEGV SEGV_ACCERR SI_CODE 2 fault on 0x17793b0

Like i said it's not a problem (for now anyway)
thanks for the help
