Re: Maxima problem

Harvey Stein too has been bitten by the following problem:

Please get and install /pub/lisp/clisp/packages/maxima.clisp.patch1 from
ma2s2.mathematik.uni-karlsruhe.de. The function MAKE-WINDOW sits in
#<PACKAGE SCREEN> since the CLISP version of May 1993.

CLISP can be compiled on any Linux version newer than 0.95.
The binary distribution for Linux is linked against libc-4.4.1 which requires
Linux kernel 0.99.11 or newer.

If you don't want to upgrade your Linux, you will have to recompile CLISP
from source. Just start it, then sit and wait.
