ok, I tried to make cm2 running on my ubuntu 10.04:

- I put cm2 like Ralf recomended via cvs into /usr/local/lisp/
- then I followed the instructions to run cm in emacs 
(/cm2/doc/emacs.html) installing 1. emacs (GNU Emacs 23) and 2. slime 
via cvs to /usr/local/lisp/ and then I made the configuration of the 

(add-to-list 'load-path "/usr/local/lisp/slime/")
(add-to-list 'load-path "/usr/local/lisp/cm2/")
(load "etc/emacs/cm.el")

- then I opened emacs again, typed in M-x cm and got the message: 
"Versions differ: ... (slime) vs. ... (swank) ... Continue? (y or n)" I 
chose no and got a working lisp-prompt
BUT no new window with slime opened! (with yes I get the following 

Can't locate module: SWANK-IO-PACKAGE::SWANK-REPL
    [Condition of type SIMPLE-ERROR]")

I have no idea what to do now, because I am not used to emacs, slime and 
swank. Would be nice you could help me with this.

Thank you,
