emacs and lisp


hi folks,
i am trying to run lisp as an inferior process in emacs
i added in my .emacs file the following:
(setq inferior-lisp-program "/usr/bin/clisp")

however when i run mx run-lisp, it told me : searching for program: no such file or directory:lisp.
what's wrong??
thanks

Is the file .emacs in your home directory, readable and owned by you? Are you starting Emacs with the command line option -q, -u or --user?

Check the output of these commands:
ls -l ~/.emacs
cat ~/.emacs
which emacs

You're welcome! I haven't heard of /etc/dev before. Sounds weird. It might be related to some hardware you've installed. What distro do you use? Put it in your profile; it helps if you ask more questions.

Jonathan, do you understand that ilisp is for accessing an external Lisp engine (usually Common Lisp) and does not interface with the integral elisp?

If you want to use ilisp with a Common Lisp, then you need to download and install CMU Common Lisp or CLisp.
