What files may I delete with impunity?http://ask.sagemath.org/question/47352/i-just-built-a-sage-system-what-files-may-i-delete-with-impunity/I have just built Sage 7.6 on an Apple iMac 8,1 running OS X version 10.11.6. I started with a download of a compressed source distribution from the Sage github repository (without cloning the repository itself, since I don't plan to contribute any development ideas or comments for awhile). Doctesting went very well, with only two failed tests out of the entire suite:
sage -t src/sage/doctest/test.py # 1 doctest failed
sage -t src/sage/modules/vector_rational_dense.pyx # 1 doctest failed
I also downloaded the equivalent binary distribution and doctested that, obtaining these results:
sage -t src/sage/calculus/calculus.py # 1 doctest failed
sage -t src/sage/doctest/test.py # 1 doctest failed
sage -t src/sage/graphs/digraph_generators.py # 3 doctests failed
sage -t src/sage/graphs/graph_generators.py # 5 doctests failed
sage -t src/sage/graphs/hypergraph_generators.py # 7 doctests failed
sage -t src/sage/modules/vector_rational_dense.pyx # 1 doctest failed
sage -t src/sage/tests/cmdline.py # Timed out after testing finished
I did expect my own build to do better, but the installation I ended up with is fully 2 GB larger than what came in the binary distribution. Much (more than 1/3) of the overage is in a directory
../sage-7.6/local/share/doc/sage/doctrees
which is not present in the binary distribution, and I assume it is only of interest to developers. Is that correct? I will trim my build by also removing two large files
../sage-7.6/src/build/temp.macosx.10.9...
../sage-7.6/src/build/lib.macosx.10.9...
but keep my log and upstream files in case I want to review the build or look at the sources. All this is pending any further advice I get in the next few days about files that are generally only of interest to developers.dyne2meterFri, 02 Aug 2019 14:03:57 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/47352/build sage without documentationhttp://ask.sagemath.org/question/10993/build-sage-without-documentation/I see that sometimes when building sage with the commands
git pull
make
the majority of time is employed in building the documentation. Actually I'm not interested in building the documentation on my machine (I usually have an internet connection and I usually browse the documentation online).
Is it possible to ignore the documentation when building sage? How can I do that?

Is there something like the `-tp` or `ptest` flags for building documentation?nilesWed, 19 Jan 2011 01:00:47 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/7885/
