GSLL_ERROR MESSAGE AND SOLUTIONS   3 comments

This is a List of the possible Error Message you may get when Installing GSLL on Windows 7 or Windows 8 and their Solutions.

How I Organized this Page:

I Organized this Page very Simply for Ease of use. Scrolling Down the Page you’ll see the word ERROR with a Number next to it, e.g. ERROR #1, Displayed in RED. Directly Beneath it, is an Error Message which is also Displayed in RED. Then, Directly Beneath that is a SOLUTION to that Error Message which will be Displayed in GOLD, with Important Information, e.g. Paths, File Names, Program Names, and Emphasized Words, Displayed in BLUE. If the SOLUTION to the Error Message contains Code, the Code will be also be Displayed in BLUE. The Error Messages I posted may not Include everthing thats in the Error Message in your Emacs, but as long as What I posted matches Word for Word with part of what you have in your Emacs, you’ll be on the Right Track.

An easy method is just to do a Find(Control-f) in your Browser, and Paste in a part of your Error Message from Emacs that DOESN’T INCLUDE ANY PATHS, e.g., for the Error Messages that contain a lot of paths, just put in the Filename at the end of all those paths e.g. in this Error Message:

 External process exited with code 1.
Command was: "C:/MinGW/bin/gcc.exe" "-m32" "-I/Users/[Your Username]/AppData/
Roaming/quicklisp/dists/quicklisp/software/cffi_0.11.1/" "-o" "C:\\Users\\
[Your Username]\\AppData\\Local\\common-lisp\\cache\\sbcl-1.1.8-win-x86\\C\\
Users\\[Your Username]\\AppData\\Roaming\\quicklisp\\dists\\quicklisp\\software\\
cffi_0.11.1\\libffi\\libffi-win32.exe" "C:\\Users\\[Your Username]\\AppData\\Local\\
common-lisp\\cache\\sbcl-1.1.8-win-x86\\C\\Users\\[Your Username]\\AppData\\
Roaming\\quicklisp\\dists\\quicklisp\\software\\cffi_0.11.1\\libffi\\libffi-win32.c"



Just, do a Find for the libffi-win32.c at the end of all the Paths and you’ll be on the Right Track. Now, When find what seems to be the right ERROR on this page, Verify your Error Message has Exact Same Content as the one I Posted, Except for Exact File Paths because your Paths in your Error Messages may be different than the ones I posted, based on where you installed your software. Then, Follow the Directions in the SOLUTION. If doing a Find in your Browser doesn’t pull up anything, still Browse through the Error Messages on the page just in case you entered in part of the Error Message I didn’t post. I didn’t post All the Content of All the Error Messages but I did post All the Content of Most of the Error Messages. All the most important information is included on each Error Message though, enough to help you track down the proper fix at least. Also, since your Paths in your Error Messages may be different than the ones I posted, just try to deduce if it is still the same Error Message, by comparing your Error Message with the ones I posted.

Note: Advanced Users, If you don’t see your Error Message, then Read all the Error Messages and Solutions and try to Piece together a possible solution. If you do find a Solution, please Comment with your Error Message and Solution and I will Post it to the Blog. It doesn’t have to be Pretty, or Neat, just Copy/Paste the Error Message from Emacs and type quickly what you did to fix it, and I will Pretty it up Later.

Good Luck!

SOLUTION #1

COPY ffi.h AND ffitarget.h FROM C:\libffi-3.0.13\i686-pc-mingw32\include AND PUT IN C:\MinGW\include or use your path to the \MinGW\include folder if you installed MinGW to a different partition that C:. Now go to C:\Program Files (x86)\GSL-1.13\include, or again substitute your Drive Letter for C: and Copy the gsl folder in that path, Copy not Cut, into C:\MinGW\include. It is Very Important That You Do These Steps Precisely, Even if you did these parts already and you know you did it right, just go back into the aforementioned folders and make sure these steps were done correctly, because that is the only reason for the:

SOLUTION #2

Open C:\Users\[Your Username]\AppData\Roaming\quicklisp\dists\quicklisp\software\osicat-20120407-git\posix\windows.lisp in Notepad++ by Right Clicking it and choosing Edit with Notepad++. Add ALL the Code, That is Directly Below in the Box, BENEATH ALL THE CODE IN THE windows.lisp FILE. It is Very Important That You Do This Step Precisely.

;; HACK to cover lack of stuff in Windows

ERROR #3

Unable to load foreign library (LIBSSL).

SOLUTION #3

Open C:\Users\[Your Username]\AppData\Roaming\quicklisp\dists\quicklisp\software\drakma-1.3.2\drakma.asd In Notepad++.

Add this:

(pushnew ::drakma-no-ssl *features*)



Right Beneath:

(in-package :cl-user)



Which is Directly Beneath all the Copyright Information(28 lines of Commented Text) at the Beginning of the drakma.asd file, so it looks like this:

(in-package :cl-user)
 (pushnew ::drakma-no-ssl *features*)
 #+:lispworks
 (unless (find-symbol “STREAM-WRITE-TIMEOUT” :stream)
 (pushnew :lw-does-not-have-write-timeout *features*))



Now, take time to Verify you Copied what is above, Exactly as I have typed it, and is in the Correct Place in the File. It is Very Important That You Do This Step Precisely. Even if you did this part already and you know you did it right, just go back into the drakma.asd file and make sure this step was done correctly, because that is the only reason for the:

Inside that Folder is one and only one Folder named gsl.
Copy that Folder and Paste it into C:\MinGW\include.

Now, take time to Verify you Copied the Correct Folder mentioned above, Into the Other Folder mentioned above, and that All the Files inside got Copied over, e.g. Watch the Progress Bar while Windows Copies it for you and Make Sure it Finished. It is Very Important That You Do This Step Precisely, Even if you did this part already and you know you did it right, just go back and Make Sure this step was done correctly, because this is the only reason for the:

gsll.asd:

   Couldn't execute "c:\\msys\\1.0\\bin\\gcc.exe": No such file or directory
   [Condition of type ASDF:LOAD-SYSTEM-DEFINITION-ERROR]



SOLUTION #6

Open grovel.lisp which is in C:\Users\[Your Username]\AppData\Roaming\quicklisp\dists\quicklisp\software\cffi_0.11.2\grovel in Notepad++.

Do a Find(Control-f) in Notepad++ for *cc* until you hit the Below Section in the Box. There will be many *cc* entries so please MAKE SURE you find the right one:

Old Version e.g. What you have currently in your grovel.lisp file:

(defparameter *cc*
 #+(or cygwin (not windows)) "cc"
 #+(and windows (not cygwin)) "c:/msys/1.0/bin/gcc.exe")



Make Sure you Change the Old Version Above (e.g. what is currently in your grovel.lisp file to be the SAME AS THE UPDATED VERSION BELOW IF AND ONLY IF you followed the Tutorial and installed Mingw to C:. Otherwise Substitute in your Path to gcc.exe in the C:/MinGW/bin/gcc.exe Section of the Below Code(gcc.exe Will always be in MinGW’s \MinGW\bin\ Folder) Also make sure, if you installed MinGW to a different path than C:\ and your path is different than in this section of the code below in the box ->C:/MinGW/bin/gcc.exe, that when you type in your path you use Foward Slashes instead of BackSlashes like I have or the Lisp Interpreter won’t recognize it. and you’ll get an Error.

Updated Version e.g. What should be in your grovel.lisp file:

(defparameter *cc*
 #+(or cygwin (not windows)) "cc"
 #+(and windows (not cygwin)) "C:/MinGW/bin/gcc.exe")



Note: The only Difference between the Old Version and the Updated Version is the part Directly After -> #+(and windows (not cygwin)).
It is Very Important That You Do This Step Precisely, Even if you did this part already and you know you did it right, just go back into the aforementioned folder and make sure this step was done correctly, because that is the only reason for the:

SOLUTION #7

Open:

C:\Users\[Your Username]\AppData\Roaming\quicklisp\dists\quicklisp\software\gsll-20130615-git\init\init.lisp

in Notepad++.

This is Important – PASTE THE ENTIRE SECTION OF CODE, DIRECTLY BELOW IN THE BOX – and there is alot = ) into the init.lisp file OVERWRITING ALL THE PREVIOUS CONTENTS. Make Sure you get Everything in the Box Below.

Now, Verify Everything in the File is Correct.

Note: It will be hard to verify that everything is correct in that file easily, Once you’ve Pasted. So just know this I tested this Tutorial Many times by Copying and Pasting Everything From this Tutorial, Every time I could Copy and Paste something from the Tutorial I did so. That includes all CODE, all PATHS, all FILENAMES, all LINKS, Everthing I could have Copy and Pasted I did. Everything’s been verified many times so you are getting a secure Tutorial. So you can trust it enough, that for the Verification Purposes of this Section to just go ahead and Re-Copy and Paste the Box Contents, Into a Blank

SOLUTION #8

Open:

C:\Users\[Your Username]\AppData\Roaming\quicklisp\dists\quicklisp\software\gsll-20130615-git\gsll.asd

in Notepad++ (might be a later date on the gsll-20130312-git part). Do a Find(Control-f) for the word nothing. (There is only one Entry for the word nothing)

It will take you to this line:

"libgsl" :pathname #+unix "libgsl-unix" #-unix "nothing-here"



Change that, and only that line, so it reads Exactly whats Below in the Box,
leave the quotes and everything, and, make sure, when you overwrite that line, the new line is in exactly the same position in the file as the other line was. e.g. Overwrite the previous line perfectly, keeping the same indentation:

"libgsl" :pathname #+unix "libgsl-unix" #-unix "libgsl-windows"



In a Nutshell: You’re just changing the "nothing-here" to "libgsl-windows"

It is Very Important That You Do This Step Precisely, Even if you did this part already and you know you did it right, just go back into the gsll.asd file and make sure this step was done correctly, because that is the only reason for the:

  1. Hi again
    Some days before I sent you an email with a problem I faced with MinGW, but I could have done it. After having reach the end
    of the procedure, I type the command (ql:quickload “gsll”) for testing the overall installation and it resulted in the following error:

    caught ERROR:
    ; READ error during COMPILE-FILE:
    ;
    ; :UTF-8 stream decoding error on
    ; #:
    ;
    ; the octet sequence #(202 202) cannot be decoded.
    ;
    ; (in form starting at line: 1, column: 0, file-position: 0)
    So I’m looking for some help on it. Thank you in advance
    Kostas K.

    • sorry it took so long to get to you..I’m new to wordpress and I was looking for comments in the comments section of my pages, not in the user area where they actually are. I just wanted to let you know the GSLL tutorial is fixed..I tested 2 times on windows 8.1 so you should be good…still need to fix the gsll errors section , I will do that in the next couple of days,
      Take care

      Joe

  2. I just checked this page to fix it and found your comments, Ill keep a closer eye on this page from now on:)
