    99=== ARM === 
    10 Clozure CL targets the ARMv6t2 architecture.  It's mostly been run on a few Freescale i.MX515 machines 
    11 (see, for example, http://www.genesi-usa.com/products), and on the Nokia N900.

    2122=== Mac OS X/Darwin === 
    22 Both PPC and x86 versions of CCL 1.6 require at least Mac OS X 10.5.  Older releases are not supported. 
     23As of version 1.7, the vanilla lisp will still run on Mac OS X 10.5, but the Cocoa-based 
     24IDE needs at least Mac OS X 10.6.

     26PowerPC Macintosh systems are no longer supported.

    2428=== FreeBSD === 
    25 x86 (32- and 64-bit) versions of CCL 1.6 should work on FreeBSD 6.x and later (though users of releases before 8.x will

    2832=== Linux === 
    29 Because of the nature of Linux distributions, it's difficult to give precise version numbers; in general, a "fairly modern" (no more than 2 or three years old) kernel and C library are more likely to work well than older versions.  In some cases, if the distributed version of the CCL kernel doesn't work on a particular Linux release because of library version issues, it may be possible to build a working version by recompiling the kernel on that Linux release.
