That would have happened when you added epel.repo to the enabled
repositories on your Scientific Linux 7 server.
The maxima-runtime-sbcl package included in the CentOS/Scientific/RHEL
repos for LON-CAPA was built against sbcl-1.0.38-3.el6, because the
EPEL repo for 7Server was not available at that time CentOS 7 was
originally released (July 2014), at which time LON-CAPA also began
being supported on that distro.
Anyway, I have updated the maxima-runtime-sbcl package in the LON-CAPA
Scientific Linux 7 repo at install.loncapa.org with a new rpm built
against the updated sbcl (sbcl-1.2.8-1.el7) available from the EPEL
7Server repo for CentOS/Scientific/RHEL 7.
If you do:
yum clean all
you'll retrieve version 5.30.0-4 of both maxima and the sbcl runtime
for maxima, as well as version 1.2.8-1 of sbcl.
Restart the LON-CAPA daemons, and the web server after the update:
/bin/systemctl restart httpd.service
I would also recommend including the line:
because although the EPEL 6Server repo includes maxima, that is no
longer the case for EPEL 7Server, so if the version of sbcl is updated
in the EPEL 7Server repo in the future you'll encounter the same issue
with a dependency from the maxima runtime, unless you've added that
