A 3.9-6) The warning message says, in part Failed to map the C heap. For GC reasons, the C heap must always be at a higher address than the Lisp heap. However (mostly due to the “Old Sun4 Problem” described in Q 3.9-5 above), Allegro CL 5.0 was shipped out on the Sparcs with a Lisp heap at a higher address than the C heap. We recently discovered this bug, and have corrected it for Allegro CL 5.0.1. However, all 5.0 .dxl files on Sparcs are likely to have the wrong ordering, and should be corrected.
