First, I tried the binaries. Both the traditional version **sage-6.8-x86_64-Darwin-OSX_10.10_x86_64.dmg** and the app version **sage-6.8-x86_64-Darwin-OSX_10.10_x86_64-app.dmg** gave me an `Unhandled SIGILL` error when I attempted to run the simple expression `1.1+1.0` . The `sage --testall` failed with the same error in many tests.
I then attempted to build sage from the source code. The default Xcode clang compiler didn't work. Maybe because it doesn't have fortran and other prerequisites. I then downloaded and built the GNU gcc compiler. After several failed attempts to build sage with that I finally tried building sage with it's internal gcc compiler [`export SAGE_INSTALL_GCC=yes`] ... and that failed too. Both my built GNU gcc and sage's internal gcc compilers gave me the same error:
configure: Configuring included Boehm GC library:
/Users/<myid>/sage-6.8/local/var/tmp/sage/build/ecl-13.5.1.p0/src/src/configure: line 5963: /Users/<myid>/sage-6.8/local/var/tmp/sage/build/ecl-13.5.1.p0/src/src/gc-unstable/configure: No such file or directory
configure: error: Unable to configure Boehm-Weiser GC
Error - Failed to configure ECL ... exiting
Before I quit, can anyone offer any advice on what I should do?jox58Tue, 11 Aug 2015 23:49:21 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/28822/Compilation problem from GIThttp://ask.sagemath.org/question/26863/compilation-problem-from-git/ Hello! I've been trying for a while to install `sagemath` from the git repo, but it continues to fail.
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))

**Can anyone what is the problem?**
By the way I'm running Debian (testing) on a Samsung laptop with i7 processor.DoxMon, 18 May 2015 12:37:36 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/26863/Compiling Sage with multiple coreshttp://ask.sagemath.org/question/9093/compiling-sage-with-multiple-cores/Hi all,
I am compiling Sage 5.0.1 in Ubuntu 12.04
According to the book "Sage: Beginner's Guide" to compile with multiple cores one needs to export a variable MAKE. I did so
export MAKe="make -j7"
and everything went well until the Atlas-3 compilation started. While compiling this (which is painfully big) only 1 core is being used.
Is there a way to compile all the parts of sage with multiple processors?
Thanks
