SO, I did what the error message suggested and it didn't do anything (edit: the double slash in the url doesn't matter) How do I fix this?

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/7901/is-the-sage_server-set-correctly/?answer=12019#post-id-12019Given the line
[Errno 13] Permission denied: '/opt/sage-4.6.1-linux-64bit-ubuntu_10.04.1_lts-x86_64-Linux/tmp/list'
it seems as if the user you are running Sage as does not have permission to write into that directory. Is `/opt/sage-4.6.1-linux-64bit-ubuntu_10.04.1_lts-x86_64-Linux/tmp` owned by root? You should try changing the permissions on that directory or run the command as a user with the appropriate permissions.Thu, 27 Jan 2011 14:18:43 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/7901/is-the-sage_server-set-correctly/?answer=12019#post-id-12019Answer by tdupu10000 for <p>I'm trying to install the Macaulay experimental package but I can't get sage to talk to the internet.
