Subject: asdf 2.009 isn't compatible with 02-common-lisp-controller-userdir.conf
Date: Tue, 12 Oct 2010 17:21:46 +0800
Package: common-lisp-controller
Version: 7.4
Severity: important

I play with quicklisp which installs asdf 2.009 for me automatically,
then asdf in sbcl complains:
ASDF could not load sb-posix because Not an absolute pathname

debugger invoked on a SIMPLE-ERROR in thread #<THREAD "initial thread" RUNNING
  Not an absolute pathname #P"~/.clc/systems/"

I change 02-common-lisp-controller-userdir.conf as below then it goes ok.

In fact the original configuration file doesn't work with asdf 2.004 too
although sbcl doesn't report the error above, sbcl can't find systems placed
in ~/.clc/systems.

Be careful the new configuration file isn't supported by asdf 2.004.

I tried to write this below the reopen email, but it seems that was the
wrong thing to do. Hopefully, the following text will appear on the bug
report now:

I'm not sure this fixes the problem in all cases. I had a stale 
with the wrong contents.

Since this isn't the config file used since a commit in February (I
think, looking at the git log), this doesn't get wiped by the fixed
version. Then it still causes the error.

Hope this makes sense,
