http://www.jejik.com

Only one thing remained: my media collection, which is stored on a 500 GB RAID1 array on the old server. That RAID1 array is also partitioned using LVM in a single 500 GB volume group.

I found some notes by Erik Jacobsen and used them to come up with an up-to-date how-to.

http://stumpwm.antidesktop.net

"... thought I would throw this out there as I have spent some time recently getting this working. I had used the stumpwm binary built with the configure && make dance, but it does not run swank in the background so the fabulous facility of running slime-connect and hacking the live window manager was not available. That and having read about clbuild I wanted to get it working.
