Hi Jason,

Could you try unpacking the archive somewhere under your home
directory and trying to run the REPL from there?  We haven't tested
installing the package into / or /usr/local, and since there is no
automated way to uninstall it, we are not recommending to install the
.tar.gz packages into / or /usr/local.
