http://ask.sagemath.org/question/7603/how-do-i-install-an-spkg/?comment=22974#post-id-22974The **sage -i** command also works if you have downloaded the spkg:

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/7603/how-do-i-install-an-spkg/?answer=11547#post-id-11547There's also "sage -f" (the "f" stands for "force"), which works just like "sage -i" but will install the spkg even if the same (or a later) version is already installed.
This is very useful when you're working on a spkg and making little changes, or if someone gives you a modified spkg with the same version.Tue, 24 Aug 2010 18:08:23 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/7603/how-do-i-install-an-spkg/?answer=11547#post-id-11547Comment by William Stein for <p>There's also "sage -f" (the "f" stands for "force"), which works just like "sage -i" but will install the spkg even if the same (or a later) version is already installed.</p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/7603/how-do-i-install-an-spkg/?comment=22876#post-id-22876And there is `sage -f -m` which installs the spkg and does *not* delete the build directory from `spkg/build`, which can be useful for debugging.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/7603/how-do-i-install-an-spkg/?comment=17479#post-id-17479This apparently now `sage -f -s`, according to the deprecation warning I get.Tue, 18 Jun 2013 14:26:50 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/7603/how-do-i-install-an-spkg/?comment=17479#post-id-17479
