Hmm... how did this not get assigned to me, wxMaxima's maintainer? Oh well,
I'll take it now.
Appears to not be a wxMaxima bug:
check to make sure you have (something like) in /etc/hosts:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
Feel free to reopen if you still experience problems after verifying your
/etc/hosts has a valid localhost entry.
I have this problem too in a almost-clean Fedora 12. I have that line in /etc/hosts and I have made ifconfig lo up, but it still doesn't work. I have tried too to disable the firewall but that doesn't worked...
It should work out of the box, if not, the bug is still present.
