    Default SML/NJ 110.69

    Hi every body,

    I was trying to install SML/NJ 110.69 (updated 29-Oct-2011) (Standard ML of New Jersey) from within YaST and also by the 1-click install, software.opensuse.org. But both of these methods give the same problem, which once I installed it, trying to launch the application, I received the following message
    [1]$ sml
    sml: unable to determine architecture/operating system

    I'm running OpenSUSE 12.1 on x86 (32 bit) architecture,
    [2]$ uname -a
    Linux ramtha 3.1.0-1.2-default #1 SMP Thu Nov 3 14:45:45 UTC 2011 (187dde0) i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    could someone help me out of how to properly install SML? thank you

    i never heard of it before, but i installed it with YaST > Software
    Management onto my 32 bit openSUSE 11.4, with no fuss/bother, easy
    peasy, and:

    Code:
    denverd@linux-os114:~> sml
    Standard ML of New Jersey v110.69 [built: Wed Feb 23 00:56:43 2011]
    - ^Z
    [1]+  Stopped                 sml
    denverd@linux-os114:~>
    get no such error as you do....so, i wonder if your 12.1 is damaged, or
    if maybe there is a problem with it (and its 3.x kernel) and sml....are
    you having other problems with your 12.1? is it running on bare metal or
    in a VM..

    i find mostly worthless documentation in these places:
    http://www.smlnj.org/doc/index.html
    /usr/share/doc/packages/smlnj/110.69-README.html
    /usr/share/doc/packages/smlnj/HISTORY

    i'd suggest future such questions be aimed at our programming forum

    DenverD,

    Thanks for your reply. Indeed, I installed the same version, SML/NJ 110.69, on openSUSE 11.4, x_64, HP ProBook, and it just works great, also I added the emacs sml-mode, where I currently can launch the SML compiler from within emacs.

    My emacs on openSUSE 12.1 also is enabled to invoke the SML compiler, if it's there; in addition, I can work safely with both the OCaml, a dialect of ML, Yast from opensuse.org or manually installed from INRIA.

    I also tweaked through the recent version from smlnj.org, currently 110.73 (updated 17-May-2011), a newer version than the one found at the opensus.org oss repo software for 12.1 (or 11.4). The major problem with the manual installation remains the same, where I post the long process on the sml-dev-list@lists.sourceforge.org.

    In addition, the OpenSUSE for 32 bit, is much more stable for both the kernal and X server than its counterpart for 64-bit Intel acrch.

    But I will have more formalization to post into the alternate forum that you suggested. Thank you.
