Hi, I just made a bug report for Fedora maxima package where I attached a patch I have been keeping in Mandriva for quite some time. 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 --disable-readline option), and I just workaround it differently in my sagemath package for gcl with this patch http://svn.mandriva.com/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/packages/cooker/sagemath/current/SOURCES/sage-4.8-maxima.patch?view=markup that I will adapt to fedora; note the "":lisp #+gcl (progn (si:readline-off) (setf *error-output* (open "/dev/stderr" :direction :output)..."" in the patch...

Thanks

    The redhat patch for clisp seems reasonable. The mandriva patch seems to be unreachable.

    Why are you setting *error-output* to stderr for gcl? Why is that needed?
