We have Maxima packaged in Fedora. Try "yum install wxMaxima maxima-gui". 
(maxima-gui is the old xmaxima GUI, it's used for some things like 
displaying plots, so you'll probably want to install it even if you're going 
to use wxMaxima as your UI.)

Others which come to my mind are Axiom, giac/xcas and Yacas. And if you're 
looking for a monster "umbrella package", there's SAGE.
