Known Bugs and Some Provisional Fixes SICStus 4.7.1
- Crashes on Windows 11 with 64-bit version of SICStus. This probably affects older versions of SICStus as well. This problem has been fixed in forthcoming 4.8.0.
A workaround is to turn off the jit compiler, i.e. start SICStus with the system property
SP_JIT set to
disabled. One way to do this is:
You can also set the environment variable
disabled in the shell (or globally) before starting SICStus.
Known Bugs and Some Provisional Fixes SICStus 4.7.0
- Installer complains about missing
config.sub file (SICStus 4.7.0 on Linux and macOS, fixed in 4.7.1).
When doing a full install, i.e. not the default "pre-built" install, the installer will fail with a message similar to
$ sudo ./InstallSICStus
Configuring system. This may take a few minutes...
Configuration phase failed. Output:
configure: error: cannot run /usr/bin/sh ./config.sub
A workaround is to download the missing file into the same folder as
InstallSICStus is located, e.g.
$ curl --output config.sub https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/config.git/plain/config.sub
You can then start the installer again (it will remember your previous answers to any questions).
