I use a "new" laptop, Lenovo Thinkpad T510 with Ubuntu 11.10. I have on it a not too good install of sage 4.7.2.(It means there were some error when it was installed, but it seems, it runs, but there are errors) I did'nt found any way install or upgrade Sage: 1. From source there is a problem with installing the python package (It is true for 4.6, 4.7.x, 4.8) 2. The upgrade says, "There are uncommitted changes in the Sage root repository". Please, I don't understand mercurial and i don't want learn it. 3. From binary of 4.8 the answer is "No module named _md5"
Why do you want to install it from the source. For most purposes it is sufficient to just unpack the contents and start using. As far as mercurial is concerned you need it only if you are updating sage with your own code, that is, for sage development. Unless you plan to get involved in it (I would highly encourage you to get involved), you don't need to learn mercurial.
