MIT-Scheme will not launch
Binary package hint: mit-scheme
On noticing that MIT-Scheme wouldn't launch from the applications I ran 'mit-scheme --edit' on the command line and received an error stating the 'Largest address does not fit in datum field of object.
Allocate less space or re-configure without HEAP_IN_
Description: Ubuntu 8.04
I expected an emacs-like X-Window to open so that I could hack me some Scheme.
Instead my computer did nothing. It was sad. A brief google returned little on the problem and passing the argument '--heap 250' or even '--heap 10' did nothing at all. I also tested the upstream Debian Unstable package with no luck, done a purge reinstall, and will soon try the Gutsy and Etch builds.
PS: This has happened systematically on two separate systems for me (a desktop and laptop) after running some of the last week's updates. Of course, those are updates to dozens of packages. MIT-Scheme may well not be the source of the bug.
