I am using Linux Mint 4.0 Light.
I just installed SML/NJ using "sudo apt-get install smlnj". When I run the application all seems well until I try to evaluate a particular expression. The messages (see below) are not conclusive. A file seems to be missing; that makes me question the apt-get for this package. However, the sml application doesn't seem very self-confident about what has gone wrong (again, see messages below).
***My question to this forum is this: how do I determine if the problem is with the application specifically, or just with the version installed by apt-get? Is there a general procedure for that?
I suppose I could download and build from the original sources on the SML/NJ website, but dont want to go through that unless necessary...
Any help would be appreciated; if this is not the correct forum, please accept my apologies (and point me to the correct one .
BTW, here is the error message. It may be of interest to anyone using SML.
