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??

well, do you have clisp installed on your system? see if you can run clisp from the command line.

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.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
