SunOS/SPARC Notes:
Note: The regular release of CMU CL does not run on SPARC 10 systems, since
the stack has been moved. Pick up the file 16f-sun4m_413.core.Z,
uncompress it, and use it instead of the lisp.core from the regular
release.
With this release, CMU CL should require no special effort to run on Sparc10's
under SunOS. Solaris is still not supported.
At least 16 meg of memory is recommended, and more is better. Your system
maintainer may need to configure extra paging space for large Lisp application.
