Anarki requires semi-recent version of racket
4 points by zck 136 days ago | 1 comment
I hadn't upgraded racket for a while (I think I was running 6.2, but now I'm not sure.

Commit 29468035e57f7e711d94622e7e4b8ffc1126f51d introduced a dependency on the racket/random module. When I try to start up anarki with the old racket, I get this error:

zck@zck-laptop:~/programs/arc/anarki$ ./arc.sh ac.scm:1117:9: cannot open module file module path: racket/random path: /gnu/store/24dg66nykhc7d85bwgq77jkmqs1zl3zm-racket-6.2.1/share/racket/collects/racket/random.rkt system error: No such file or directory; errno=2 context...: standard-module-name-resolver standard-module-name-resolver

I updated racket (I now have 6.8), and now it works. Just noting this in case anyone else has this problem.

Yes, this happened in the course of http://arclanguage.org/item?id=20070 3 months ago. I realized it 3 weeks later and upgraded the docs: https://github.com/arclanguage/arclanguage.github.io/commit/.... Doesn't really help us veterans, though; sorry about that! And thanks also for the factoid that v6.8 works. I'd only tried it with v6.9.
