Download for macOS
To install Next for macOS, simply mount the DMG, copy Next.app to your applications folder and get started!
Note: Next is not currently signed, so Mac users may have a popup saying "Next can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer." If the popup lacks a "proceed anyway" option, close it then right click Next.app and click "Open." Upon lauching again, the popup will have an option to proceed opening the application anyways. Please make sure to kill any Zombie instances before attempting to restart the application.

This is a complete bundle that includes all the
recursive dependencies and requires nothing but a
recent-enough Linux kernel, hence its rather big size!
As soon as you download Next for Linux, extract the
archive (you need lzip) and execute
to get started!
The archive does not have to be extracted to the filesystem root
/). If it is extracted locally, there is a requirement though:
this pack relies on the "user namespace" feature of the Linux kernel,
which allows unprivileged users to change root folder. This feature must be

Depending on your kernel compilation options, you might have to issue the following instead:
# sysctl -w kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1
Refer to your distribution for more help.
# echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/userns_restrict
You can produce this Guix pack yourself with
which should yield:
$ guix pack --relocatable --no-grafts --compression=lzip --symlink=/usr/local/bin/next=bin/next sbcl-next
