SAGE on Google Wave
As a test, I opened a public ‘Google Wave’ about SAGE. It could provide real-time communication if you have questions about SAGE (something in between Instant Messaging and Email). If you’re on ‘Wave’ already, search for SAGE. If it proves successful, the SAGE group will try to maintain some office hours, open for questions and support. For information: Google wave:

If you need an invite (I’ve still a few), send me an email at renambot at gmail dot com. Otherwise,you can request one at:

Linux binary packages
Chicago, IL

A whole set of Linux binary packages (RPMs and DEBs) were uploaded for a varieties of distribution, for SAGE 3.2.

Post in the forums if any problems or if your favorite distribution is not supported. Go to the ‘Downloads’ section under the ‘Resources’ menu and scroll down to ‘Linux Packages’ or click here

It includes the new SAGE file structure:

  • SAGE installed in /usr/local/sage
  • Environment modified system-wide: library path and shell configuration (user should remove their own configuration, and logout after installation)

Configuration files are loaded as:

  • first in current directory
  • then in $HOME/.sageConfig
  • then in $SAGE_DIRECTORY/sageConfig  (i.e. /usr/local/sage/sageConfig )
  • applications configuration files are in the sub-directory ‘applications’
  • If users want to modify a file, copy it to your own .sageConfig directory and edit it there
  • SAGE should be started with the command ‘sage’  (python script)
