Not sure if this is an issue with swank-clojure or swank/slime in general, so my apologies ahead of time...

Made the mistake of updating my macports tree and upgrading slime, now when I invoke clojure-jack-in while in my clojure project I get the following message:

Versions differ: 2012-02-12 (slime) vs. 20100404 (swank). Continue? (y or n)

Pressing yes will bring up the Slime REPL but with the outdated 20100404 version in the REPL header. Attempting to evaluate a simple s-expression will result in the following:

slime-check-connected: Not connected. Use `M-x slime' to start a Lisp.

Indeed, checking the messages i can see that this one appeared immediately before attempting to evaluate the expression:

Lisp connection closed unexpectedly: connection broken by remote peer

Tried to get assistance with this issue on stackoverflow, but so far there are no takers. Thanks.


Yes, this is a known problem. Swank Clojure is only known to work with version 20100404 of slime. If you use M-x clojure-jack-in as per the readme it will use this version of slime, but it won't work with the current upstream.
