Description jszhao 2018-12-04 09:40:04 UTC
In FreeBSD, maxima was dependent on sbcl. However, when sbcl upgraded/updated, it seems that maxima also compiled again based on the new sbcl. However, maxima would not be updated by pkg. Thus, when invoking maxima after upgrading/updating sbcl, maxima always stop to work. Then, I have to delete maxima, reinstall it, and then it works.

Is it possible to reinstall maxima, when update/upgrading sbcl?

I think in this case the solution is that Maxima's maintainer should bump PORTREVISION's value.

Maxima is not maintained at the moment. I asked to take maintainership and provided and update to version 5.42.1, but the bug report is still waiting for a committer: if you are interested, see #bug 232118.

No bumping of PORTREVISION is needed for my patch since PORTVERSION is already higher that ports tree's PORTVERSION.

Kirill (krion) is lang/sblc's MAINTAINER, perhaps he can help here (CC'd).

After the latest maxima updates, does this problem still exist ?
Comment 4 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2019-01-27 13:18:18 UTC
I tested wxMaxima with the recent maxima, and it seems to work, so closing this ticket.
