Following the suggestions given, I installed Oracle's VMVirtualbox ok and Sage 4.7. I installed the binary and did not attempt to use the source. After starting, the programme simply refuses to give me a Notebook and says incomprehensible(to me!) error messages about opening my web browser at localhost:0000 etc. I was able to go to the Sage directory and look at some of the files there but the instructions in the README.txt on the download web page simply does not correspond to reality. Any advice would be appreciated!Mon, 15 Aug 2011 04:39:18 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/Answer by advalencia for <p>I tried to obtain Sage 4.7 to my laptop which runs on Windows Vista.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/?answer=12840#post-id-12840Hello, thanks for the suggestions, I am running the browser in the host machine, I shut down Windows firewall but it didn't help, I'm getting a "The connection was reset" error message. The network connection to the vm seems to be OK as far as I can tell... any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.Mon, 31 Oct 2011 12:31:05 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/?answer=12840#post-id-12840Answer by advalencia for <p>I tried to obtain Sage 4.7 to my laptop which runs on Windows Vista.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/?answer=12841#post-id-12841Let me correct this: It might be the network adapter in the VM , if I ctrl-c and then ifconfig, I only see the local loopback and no other adapters, I already reinstalled the VM and try to update the drivers, but no luck :(
Any ideas?
thanks to everyone.Mon, 31 Oct 2011 14:36:57 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/?answer=12841#post-id-12841Comment by Volker Braun for <p>Let me correct this: It might be the network adapter in the VM , if I ctrl-c and then ifconfig, I only see the local loopback and no other adapters, I already reinstalled the VM and try to update the drivers, but no luck :(

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/?comment=20993#post-id-20993ifconfig should show eth0 up and running. Are you sure you are running the latest version of VirtualBox (4.1.4 at this time)? The image has networking set up that it should work without changes. In Settings -> Network -> Adapter 1 you should have NAT and Intel PRO/1000.Tue, 01 Nov 2011 06:19:00 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/?comment=20993#post-id-20993Answer by advalencia for <p>I tried to obtain Sage 4.7 to my laptop which runs on Windows Vista.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/?answer=12835#post-id-12835I tried the instructions, but when I try to open http://localhost:8000 it just stays there thinking.
The last message in the virtual machine is Starting factory twisted.web2....
I tried both virtual box (1.147) and vmplayer (4.0.0.471) with the sage-4.7.1.ova
Thanks a lot for your help.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/?comment=21003#post-id-21003I'm a little confused about what you tried precisely. Did you open the browser on the virtual machine or on the Vista host machine?Sat, 29 Oct 2011 10:57:15 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/?comment=21003#post-id-21003Comment by Volker Braun for <p>I tried the instructions, but when I try to open <a href="http://localhost:8000">http://localhost:8000</a> it just stays there thinking.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/?comment=20997#post-id-20997There is no browser or GUI in the virtual machine, so I assume it is on the host machine. You might be running some sort of firewall on the host that is preventing your web browser from opening the worksheet.Sat, 29 Oct 2011 17:21:42 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/?comment=20997#post-id-20997Answer by MaelstromYamato for <p>I tried to obtain Sage 4.7 to my laptop which runs on Windows Vista.

At which step are you stuck on in the "http://www.sagemath.org/mirror/win/README.txt"?

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/?comment=21363#post-id-21363Firstly step 4 didn't work as stated.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/?comment=21360#post-id-21360We changed the virtual machine to be a bit eaiser to use, and now you don't have to set a username/password any more. Just open your web browser and point it at http://localhost:8000 (NOT: 0000).

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8274/why-does-sage-not-install-with-vista/?answer=12846#post-id-12846After uninstalling, cleaning drivers and reinstalling the virtual machine, Adding a second network adapter with a host-only adapter solved the issue. I have tried this before, but I believe that I had some conflict with an old driver, I believe it was due to a previous installation of the Virtual machine, so I had to do a thorough clean up of drivers and old files (even after this the host-only adapter was required).
