Hi Mitchell,

I am new to Mac OS X.

In 10.5.8 (Leopard) there is no problem.

I am using root as user. Would 'export HOME= /root' did not work?
Still got the same errors.

This is separate problem (below). I thought compiling the source would work

Again, I am new to Mac OS X as user and using Xcode. How you enable
"SCI_NAMESPACE flag" and where is the "SCI_NAMESPACE" located.

Yes, the lua problem is using the binary that I downloaded from
textadept website, leopard and I tried to use it in SL.

Thanks again.
