I'm pretty sure I've got detailed notes in the course forum for UW 2009
LING567.  Looking through the archives now...

Ah... there it is.  The error I got was:

LKB(12): (lui-initialize)
LKB(13): /home/cjac/delphin/lkb/bin/linux.x86.64/yzlui: error while
loading shared libraries: libgtk-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object
file: No such file or directory
[NIL] lsp-loop(): premature end of file (read 1 characters)

And I found the 64-bit yzlui library at




Download that binary and replace the one you have under

I think the issue is documented here:

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):
