I don't have a fc5 box handy at the moment, but:

maxima-gui includes:
Requires: tk
And the tk pkg is *supposed* to include /usr/bin/wish.

So, questions:
1.  Do you have the tk rpm installed?
$ rpm -q tk
2.  Do you have /usr/bin/wish on your system?
$ rpm -q -f /usr/bin/wish
3.  If yes to 1/2, why isn't the xmaxima script finding/using /usr/bin/wish?
Comment 2 Eric Tanguy 2006-03-21 16:40:25 EST
I have to install tk manually and now all work fine.
Don't know why tk was not installed if it is required by maxima-gui.

Let's consider this a fluke then.  We can revisit the issue if/when any
duplicate/similar reports come in.
