Hi, the problem mentioned below is triggered by trying to run
XMaxima, if I am not mistaken. Any advice about how to
create a socket of the appropriate type?

Not work xmaxima with ECL 9.12.3

maxima-5.20.1/src/server.lisp function open-socket

In ECL 9.12.3 (si::open-client-stream host port) return binary stream,
but for maxima need character stream.

(si::stream-external-format-set socket :element-type 'character)
not help, print:
Cannot change external formatof binary stream #<io stream localhost>

I ran out of ideas how to fix it :(

Sorry, my English
