It is required to allow sagemath work properly with maxima using clisp as backend. The fedora bug report is at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=837142 But I am afraid the patch is not fully complete (in the sense of maxima's disablereadline option), and I just workaround it differently in my sagemath package for gcl with this patch http://svn.mandriva.com/cgibin/viewvc.cgi/packages/cooker/sagemath/current/SOURCES/sage4.8maxima.patch?view=markup that I will adapt to fedora; note the "":lisp #+gcl (progn (si:readlineoff) (setf *erroroutput* (open "/dev/stderr" :direction :output)..."" in the patch... Thanks  >Comment By: Paulo Andrade (pcpa) Date: 20121116 06:46 Message: Sorry about link. Previous one pointed to "head" commit, but I renamed the file. This should work http://svn.mandriva.com/cgibin/viewvc.cgi/packages/cooker/sagemath/current/SOURCES/sagemaxima.patch?revision=822115&view=markup The patch sets *erroroutput* to stderr because by default it is aliased to *terminalio* (probably due to the pexpect python code allocating a pty where it talks to maxima), and that causes sagemath to dead lock due to failing to parse maxima/gcl output as stdout and stderr are in the same fd. Note that I maintain these patches in my Mandriva, and now my (not yet "official") Fedora sagemath package. Upstream sagemath supports only the ecl maxima backend (that is now built in Fedora maxima since this patch http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/maxima.git/commit/?id=ea0b7f2ee66bbc08de07c83217ac44790147c581)  Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20121115 08:12 Message: The redhat patch for clisp seems reasonable.

This is caused by bfloaterf computing erf using 1gamma_incomplete(1/2,x^2)/sqrt(%pi). For small x, gamma_incomplete(1/2,x^2) is very close to sqrt(%pi), so we lose lots of precision using this formula. For small x, we should just use the taylor series.

But the asymptotic series for erfc(x) = exp(z^2)/z/sqrt(%pi) so the right answer is close to 2.18e17.

Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20121114 08:13 Message: Interesting. This happens because there's a bug in erf. In particular, slatec::derf is wrong. When x < sqeps (approx 1.49e8), derf uses erf = 2*x*x/sqrt(%pi). But the taylor series for erf is 2*x/sqrt(%pi). When this is fixed, inverse_erf(1d10) converges very quickly.
