# Compiling Sage with multiple cores

 0 Hi all, I am compiling Sage 5.0.1 in Ubuntu 12.04 According to the book "Sage: Beginner's Guide" to compile with multiple cores one needs to export a variable MAKE. I did so export MAKe="make -j7"  and everything went well until the Atlas-3 compilation started. While compiling this (which is painfully big) only 1 core is being used. Is there a way to compile all the parts of sage with multiple processors? Thanks asked Jun 19 '12 JuanPi 11 ● 1 ● 2 http://ailab.ifi.uzh.ch/c...

 2 When compiling ATLAS, Sage just uses one thread, as discussed here. And yes, unfortunately ATLAS takes a long time to build, and you just have to wait. posted Jun 19 '12 John Palmieri 2605 ● 8 ● 23 ● 57 http://www.math.washingto... Thank you, I see the problem.JuanPi (Jun 19 '12)
