slime will not load in emacs

Thanks for any help

This is new for me changed hard drives installed Ubuntu 14.10.
It used to work well, I have used Emacs since Ubuntu 8.04

Slime is looking for cl-asdf 3.1? Ubuntu loads 3.o?
I have deleted Emacs and cl-asdf and Slime from the computer thru Synaptic Package Manager and then re-enstalled each.

This is what Emacs is looking for

(progn (load "/usr/share/common-lisp/source/slime/swank-loader.lisp" :verbose t) (funcall (read-from-string "swank-loader:init")) (funcall (read-from-string "swank:start-server") "/tmp/slime.31806"))

This is SBCL 1.2.3.debian, an implementation of ANSI Common Lisp.
More information about SBCL is available at <>.

SBCL is free software, provided as is, with absolutely no warranty.
It is mostly in the public domain; some portions are provided under
BSD-style licenses. See the CREDITS and COPYING files in the
distribution for more information.

; caught WARNING:
; You are using ASDF version 3.1.3 (probably from (require "asdf") or loaded by
; quicklisp) and have an older version of ASDF 3.0.3 registered at
; #P"/usr/share/common-lisp/source/cl-asdf/asdf.asd". Having an ASDF installed
; and registered is the normal way of configuring ASDF to upgrade itself, and
; having an old version registered is a configuration error. ASDF will ignore
; this configured system rather than downgrade itself. In the future, you may
; want to either: (a) upgrade this configured ASDF to a newer version, (b)
; install a newer ASDF and register it in front of the former in your
; configuration, or (c) uninstall or unregister this and any other old version of
; ASDF from your configuration. Note that the older ASDF might be registered
; implicitly through configuration inherited from your system installation, in
; which case you might have to specify :ignore-inherited-configuration in your in
; your ~/.config/common-lisp/source-registry.conf or other source-registry
; configuration file, environment variable or lisp parameter. Indeed, a likely
; offender is an obsolete version of the cl-asdf debian or ubuntu package, that
; you might want to upgrade (if a recent enough version is available) or else
; remove altogether (since most implementations ship with a recent asdf); if you
; lack the system administration rights to upgrade or remove this package, then
; you might indeed want to either install and register a more recent version, or
; use :ignore-inherited-configuration to avoid registering the old one. Please
; consult ASDF documentation and/or experts.
