I was trying to install the SLIME. I downloaded the zipped package and according to the README file, I had to put this piece of code in the .emacs file:
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/hacking/lisp/slime/") ; your SLIME directory (setq inferior-lisp-program "/opt/sbcl/bin/sbcl") ; your Lisp system (require 'slime) (slime-setup)
The slime directory is straightforward .What about the Lisp system. How do I find it?
