http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?comment=23253#post-id-23253Hmmm. In a week or so the student may no longer need access to Sage. We'll see. (BTW, the link to the google group doesn't work---it just goes to the top level of groups.google. I think that's a google thing, not anything to do with your link.)Mon, 07 Jul 2014 16:26:28 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?comment=23253#post-id-23253Comment by kcrisman for <p>I have a student running Mac OS X 10.5.8.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?comment=23252#post-id-23252We do have a volunteer to do that but it will have to wait a bit over a week (see https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/sage-devel/w_Asu9Phd6c). I'm sorry I don't have access to such an old machine running Intel - most people running on Intel chips upgraded at least to 10.6.Mon, 07 Jul 2014 07:45:19 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?comment=23252#post-id-23252Comment by smbelcas for <p>I have a student running Mac OS X 10.5.8.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?comment=23215#post-id-23215I think the key question is whether this is an Intel or PPC chip, though. Otherwise we can't even build a binary on request if we don't know that...Fri, 04 Jul 2014 09:44:30 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?comment=23215#post-id-23215Answer by kcrisman for <p>I have a student running Mac OS X 10.5.8.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?answer=23205#post-id-23205You won't like this answer, but just for completeness for when others come: it should still be possible (though annoying) to get Xcode for that computer from Apple's website (after lots of hoops, trust me) and compile Sage from scratch.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?comment=23213#post-id-23213Yeah---you know me well :). Student isn't very computer-savvy, I think, so we can't compile on student's machine; and so the problem is really that my computer that (I think still has) a X.5 version of Sage on it is in a different state so I can't copy that binary.Fri, 04 Jul 2014 08:19:07 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?comment=23213#post-id-23213Answer by tmonteil for <p>I have a student running Mac OS X 10.5.8.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?comment=23204#post-id-23204Alternately, we can try to find someone who has a 10.5 computer and can compile a binary to upload to the mirrors.Fri, 04 Jul 2014 07:22:22 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?comment=23204#post-id-23204Comment by kcrisman for <p>You can find the sources of previous versions of Sage at : <a href="http://sagemath.org/src-old/">http://sagemath.org/src-old/</a></p>
http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?comment=23203#post-id-23203That is probably correct, unless your student has a PowerPC chip, in which case the Sage 5.13 binaries for that platform should work.Fri, 04 Jul 2014 07:20:37 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?comment=23203#post-id-23203Comment by smbelcas for <p>You can find the sources of previous versions of Sage at : <a href="http://sagemath.org/src-old/">http://sagemath.org/src-old/</a></p>
http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?comment=23200#post-id-23200We need binaries, not sources.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23193/download-older-versions-of-sage-where/?answer=23208#post-id-23208I still have a PPC machine with OSX 10.5.8 sitting in a box, and perhaps it can be used to build the "universal" Sage distribution, i.e. the one that will run on PPC and on Inter. Although I have never done such a "universal", a.k.a. "fat" Sage version.
Also, IIRC, OSX 10.6 can be used to build executables for 10.5 (but I don't have 10.6 anywhere anymore).
