Alice installation issues
See the Alice Download page for general information about installing Alice.
*Installation instructions for Ubuntu 10.04/amd64*
Download and extract the binary tar ball as instructed here:
Add /opt/alice-1.4/bin to your PATH (not /opt/alice-seam/bin as instructed), you can do this by adding this to your ~/.bashrc file:
Open a new terminal, and run alice -g
If you get this error:
OpenLibrary(/opt/alice-1.4//lib/seam/alice.dll) failed: libgmp.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Broker.cc:76 error 'could not link language layer library' Segmentation fault
Then the fix is to download getlibs from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=474790 and run

Mac OS X via Fink
Minor issue with the Mac OS X Fink install:
I had to install gmp libraries through fink before the alice command would work.
This problem should be fixed with the new version of the Alice package. - Guido
