>Has anyone positive experience of using Lua under FreeBSD?

We don't have access to a FreeBSD machine, but Lua has been in the FreeBSD
list for a while now, so I assume that would be not problems running Lua in
FreeBSD. See

>Lua 4.0

Is it just Lua 4.0? Does 3.2 work fine?
Do the distribution tests of both versions run ok?
Does it have to do with the pthreads library?

Can you give us a stack traceback as printed by gdb?
