I have recently compiled and installed GNU SmallTalk on a Sun Ultra60 running Solaris 8.
Invoking gst seems to work fine but the   st>  prompt does not show up.

I compiled by doing
        ./configure --prefix=/net/Smalltalk --enable-modules=Blox,TCP
        make check  (all but one passed - low level float math didn't pass)
        make install

Here is my session. I invoked gst, typed in a simple Hello World print statement and executed. It seems to work fine but no prompt :

address@hidden> PATH=/net/SmallTalk/bin:${PATH}
address@hidden> echo $SHELL
address@hidden> gst -v
GNU Smalltalk version 1.95.10

'Hello, World!' printNl !
Execution begins...
'Hello, World!'
returned value is nil
1236 byte codes executed
which took 0.001 seconds, giving 1236000 bytecodes/sec
98 primitives, percent 7.93
self returns 5, inst var returns 2, literal returns 4

Any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
