[developers] Logon on Ubuntu 10.04

Yes, I'm on a 64-bit machine, but don't know where to obtain a 64-bit version of pangolui different from the 32-bit version (the two executables in logon/lingo/lkb/bin/linux.x86.[32|64] are apparently identical).

I also tried (lui-initialize :lui "yzlui") which works a little better (for English) than (lui-initialize :lui "pangolui"): it succeeds in displaying parse trees, the parse chart, and indexed MRSs, but it crashes upon being asked to display AVMs or simple MRSs.  Unfortunately, the file /tmp/yzlui.debug.danf does not supply any clue about what goes wrong with AVMs.  All I see is the following Lisp message (the same one that pangolui produces when it crashes):

[NIL] lsp-loop(): premature end of file (read 1 characters)

I think I recall this problem... Are you perhaps running on a 64-bit machine? If I recall correctly, you need to replace the binary in the distribution with a 64-bit version.

Dear all,

I am having a bit of a problem running LKB from the LOGON distribution
properly. It seems to load well, and loading a grammar is also no
problem. However, when parsing, things go south:

[NIL] lsp-loop(): premature end of file (read 1 characters)

When trying again, I get the really old-fashioned graphical
representation. Issuing the command (lkb:lui-initialize) works, it
even shows some parse tree after parsing a new sentence, but crashes
when doing a mouse-over.

Is this a known problem, hopefully with a known workaround?
