The famous Land of Lisp uses CLISP. This is a tutorial to help you setup everything up.

I use Spacemacs + Common Lisp Layer + CLISP + Manjaro Linux.

After install the Common Lisp Layer in Spacemacs, when start up Slime, I got an error saying: could not load ASDF.

Here is the fix that worked for me:

Install asdf separately: yay asdf

After it is successfully installed, it prints: To load ASDF every time you start Lisp, copy the lines from /etc/default/asdf to your ~/sbclrc or ~/.ccl-init.lisp

In my case, I put what is inside /etc/default/asdf into ~/.swank.lisp.

Now things should start to work.
