This is the original poster with an update. Tried both from the notebook after moving the files to /etc/mesa

Neither worked -- then I remembered that linux is full of gotchas so I broke out of the notebook right-ctrl and f1, then logged in as root ( password sage ) and from the command line changed the file rights: chmod uog=rwx -R /etc/mesa

Then I restarted the sage vm. So far it seems to work ( the import sys method, the other may work as well, I will try later. )

Thanks very much.
