        I'm currently having a look at this open RC Bug in Debian and
Ubuntu. You said you know how this is to be solved, can you provide a
patch or instructions on how to fix it?




I downloaded debian-503-i386-netinst.iso and used it to build a clean
version of debian.

I set up the prerequired packages (not all are required but....) and
then built the latest release (November 2009)

I did the following steps:

apt-get -y install gcc build-essential debhelper gcl gettext gs-gpl html2text apt-get -y install intltool-debian libgmp3-dev libice-dev libxau-dev libxaw7-dev
apt-get -y install po-debconf x-dev x11proto-input-dev x11proto-kb-dev
apt-get -y install libncurses5-dev libreadline5-dev libstdc++6-4.1-dev gawk
apt-get -y install texlive-pstricks git-core texlive
git clone git://
cd axiom
export AXIOM=`pwd`/mnt/debian
export PATH=$AXIOM/bin:$PATH

I uploaded the binary as

To run it do:
tar -zxf axiom-debian-nov2009-bin.tgz
cd axiom
export AXIOM=`pwd`/mnt/debian
export PATH=$AXIOM/bin:$PATH

In the hyperdoc window you can click on

Basic Commands -> Draw -> A function of two variables -> Continue -> Do It

and you should see a 3D graphics

At the Axiom comand line you can type:


and get back "- cos(x)"

Let me know if it works for you.
