Description Benjamin Schulz 2013-01-27 13:02:30 UTC
after the current stable version of maxima refused to compile, I tried ~amd version sci-mathematics/maxima-5.28.0

it works fine, it just can't connect to cantor or wxmaxima. wxmaxima. even the ~amd64 version,  sci-mathematics/wxmaxima-12.09.0 says:

(wxmaxima:2446): WARNING **: IPP request failed with status 1280

Comment 1 Benjamin Schulz 2013-01-27 16:38:12 UTC
i looked at cantor again.

It seems that cantor could start maxima, even if it said it didn't.

However, there was surely some crash, as maximas output was:

cantor(19294)/kdecore (KLibrary) findLibraryInternal: plugins should not have a 'lib' prefix: ""
Object::disconnect: Unexpected null parameter
cantor(19294)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "" with KXMLGUIFactory!

the window of cantor, however, freezes, saying it wants to initialize the session...
Comment 2 Benjamin Schulz 2013-01-27 16:40:00 UTC
now there was additional console output:

 The function bug_report() provides bug reporting information.
;   undefined function: SETUP-SERVER
; compilation unit finished
;   Undefined function:
;   caught 1 STYLE-WARNING condition

Maxima encountered a Lisp error:

 The function MAXIMA::SETUP-SERVER is undefined.

Comment 3 Benjamin Schulz 2013-01-27 16:42:52 UTC
that being said, i tried it with clisp, sbcl, and ecls. I also disabled each useflag one for one...

The current stable version in portage can only compile with clisp enabled and sbcl and ecls disabled.

After reverting to the stable version of maxima, i have now this error with the stable version too....

I don't know what is the cause for that...
Comment 4 Andrey Grozin gentoo-dev 2013-01-28 11:42:14 UTC
On my ~amd64 box, wxmaxima successfully starts maxima-5.29.1 with any of 5 lisps: sbcl-1.1.3, gcl-2.6.8_pre20120805, clozurecl-1.8, ecls-12.12.1, clisp-2.49-r3. On ~x86 box, also with cmucl-20c (it's not available on amd64). I cannot reproduce your problem.
I don't know how cantor interacts with maxima. You'd better ask the maxima mailing list, stating the exact versions of maxima and cantor. Maybe, there are people who will be able to help with this problem.
Comment 5 Benjamin Schulz 2013-01-28 17:08:17 UTC
I got this behavior since an emerge sync and an "emerge -uD world" two weeks ago....

before that, wxmaxima and maxima worked well.

The fact that, when I downgrade wxmaxima and maxima to  stable versions, the problem persists (even if these maxima and wxmaxima versions worked before) indecates that the problem is because of some updated library that came in by "emerge -uD world"...

I will now look at my lisp versions once Im at my laptop again, and see whether downgrading or upgrading them helps...

by the way, the stable version of maxima refuses to compile on my system. So it maybe on the lisp end....
Comment 6 Benjamin Schulz 2013-02-03 10:13:22 UTC
I compiled lisp and there we have it:

Comment 7 Andrey Grozin gentoo-dev 2013-02-04 03:36:37 UTC
A pity. Unfortunately, the common-lisp team in Gentoo is < 1 person, and bugs are unfixed for very long periods. I tried to push some modern stuff into the tree, in particular, sbcl-1.1.x. For me, sbcl-1.1.3 works very well - it compiles maxima and fricas, and is the fastest common lisp. But these new ebuilds break something else, and therefore are hard masked. Unless we find somebody who will join the common-lisp team, the situation will remain hopeless.
Comment 8 Jeremy Murphy 2013-09-22 06:56:21 UTC
This doesn't sound like a bug in maxima, and perhaps not a bug at all if you haven't recompiled related packages like cantor after changing maxima version.

Could you please update the title to specify the bug correctly, or consider closing it if there is no clearly defined bug.
Comment 9 Benjamin Schulz 2013-09-22 09:47:32 UTC
of course I have recompiled cantor and wxmaxima with different versions a dozen times or so....
They seem to call maxima through the same client-server mechanism, and it seems that they can not establish a connection to the maxima server, because of some problem with a library that must be somewhere in my system. But I do not know which library this is. I will try emerge -UD world again soon, and see whether this is fixed.
Comment 10 Benjamin Schulz 2013-09-22 18:44:48 UTC
Perhaps I should say that I believe this is linked to

always during compilation of dev-lisp/sbcl, self tests are runned by the ebuild. Build is cancelled with 
 "Some of the contrib modules did not build successfully or pass their self-tests. Failed contribs:" sb-bsd-sockets"

and exactly these sockets module is responsible for the mechanism through which wxmaxima or cantor are contacting maxima.
The lisp librarys other than sbcl compile fine, however, they do not run self tests. The malfunction seems to become manifest, only if I start a probram with a client server mechanism through a socket module, like wxmaxima or cantor,
Comment 11 Benjamin Schulz 2013-09-22 18:46:52 UTC
I may also add that I do not have anything like selinux or something enabled, which could initiate this problem. 

It seems to be due to some library which lisp depends on.
Comment 12 Benjamin Schulz 2013-10-11 17:21:59 UTC
I did now an entire reinstall using ~amd64.

Now on unstable, maxima and wxmaxima works like a charm.

I still do not know thich library did prevent the communication between lisp clients and servers on my stable system.

At least ~amd64 seems to work.
