Due to AppArmor support in the latest versions of the Ubuntu kernel, MIT-Scheme fails to work if the default install is used. To install and run MIT-Scheme on your Ubuntu machine, perform the following steps:
Download the source from here.
Unpack the .tar.gz file using:
tar xzf mit-scheme-c-20090107.tar.gzcd into the src directory of the unpacked folder Build and install the package using the following commands:
etc/make-liarc.sh make install
After you do this, you still need to configure the minimum mmap address:
sudo sysctl -w vm.mmap_min_addr=0
If you want to make this permanent instead of just until you restart your machine, edit your /etc/sysctl.conf file to add this binding.
