I recently downloaded sage-8.9's code from [the standard download page](http://www.sagemath.org/download.html). I would like to update my installation in order to have the latest features, but I don't want to download the source and compile it again from zero.
Is it possible to use `git pull` in order to update my already compiled distribution, and recompile it again? Is the following workflow valid for this?
cd <the-sage-src-directory>
git pull
cd Sage/
make configure
configure --with-python=3
make build
Thanks in advance for your answers!dsejasTue, 22 Oct 2019 14:18:39 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/48474/Upgrade sagemath to the latest stable versionhttp://ask.sagemath.org/question/45805/upgrade-sagemath-to-the-latest-stable-version/I am running a debian distribution. I downloaded a precompiled and preconfigured sage math archive available here:
http://sage.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/sage/linux/64bit/index.html
The installation is a success and sagemath works perfectly.
What if I need to upgrade this version to the latest stable version in the future ? Can I avoid to do the same process and download the complete new archive or can I use "git pull" inside my installation directory (which is a git repository) ?
I tried "git pull" but I was about to install the unstable version of sagemath 8.7.beta7 which I don't want to use.sagenotdeadSun, 17 Mar 2019 09:54:09 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/45805/How to use git to add a packagehttp://ask.sagemath.org/question/28587/how-to-use-git-to-add-a-package/Using Ubuntu, downloaded sage6.7 binary and successfully installed. Use terminal to run sage. To install a package, the recipe used to be sage -optional, then sage -i package. Now all changed. How should I install, say, the package database-gap? I have installed the Ubuntu package git, then get lost. Linux command line solution would be great.

I'm doing the following:
$ mkdir Software
$ cd Software git clone
$ git://github.com/sagemath/sage.git
$ cd sage
$ export MAKE="make -j6"
$ make
Everything seems OK, but at some point (for details see the [log file](http://www.filedropper.com/flintqs-20070817p8))

I'm reviewing trac [ticket #11111](http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/11111) and I want to see the changes introduced by this ticket on top of [ticket #8678](http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/8678). I've already reviewed the other patch, so I don't want to waste my time re-reading those changes.
How do I do this?FrancoMon, 13 Apr 2015 12:47:19 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/26517/Git-Trac command setuphttp://ask.sagemath.org/question/23598/git-trac-command-setup/ I'm trying to install the Git-Trac command by following the instructions given
[here](http://www.sagemath.org/doc/developer/git_trac.html#chapter-git-trac).
When I run the command
git clone https://github.com/sagemath/git-trac-command.git
I get the following error message: "fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/sagemath/git-trac-command.git/': SSL certificate problem: Invalid certificate chain"
Any suggestions on how to deal with this?dkrummSat, 26 Jul 2014 17:07:36 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23598/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?
MicheleWed, 05 Feb 2014 00:02:57 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/10993/Track a sage worksheet in githttp://ask.sagemath.org/question/10731/track-a-sage-worksheet-in-git/I would like to track the changes to a sage worksheet in git so I can collaborate with github/bitbucket with a group who typically does not have access to a centralized machine. Right now I have been copying the sage .sws files to the repository for each version, but they are binary so much of the utility of version control is lost (the comments, feature tracking, etc still work)
I suggest a split between text/code and binary data and maybe having 2 files per worksheet instead of 1. I have already played with uncompressing the sws and version tracking the worksheet.html, but that doesn't integrate as nicely into a workflow.

forget which. When sage was rebuilding, however, I encountered the
compile failure described here: [http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/9828#comment:2][1]
This looks like an issue that was fixed in the past, what do I need to
do to make my stuff work?
Note that I have been working on some sage development, and have a git
repository in my sage/ folder, but it shouldn't be touching the
package that is having difficulties.
Thanks for the help,
Ethan
