# glibc 2.17 dependency

Running Xubuntu 12.04 on an HP Compaq nc8430. 2 GB RAM. I installed Sage 5.9. I can get into the notebook interface and do some algebra and calculus. However, when I try to plot something, I get errors. Here's the traceback:

What's troubling me a bit is that I'm seeing some ubuntu 13.04 stuff in there. That's not ...

You downloaded sage-5.9-linux-32bit-ubuntu_13.04-i686-Linux which strongly suggests that it's for 32 bit Ubuntu on 13.04. Linux distros are annoyingly fickle when it comes to these things. Do you think you could use the 64 bit http://mirror.clibre.uqam.ca/sage/linux/64bit/sage-5.9-linux-64bit-ubuntu_12.04.2_lts-x86_64-Linux.tar.lzma ?

No, because I don't have a 64-bit system. Is there a Sage 5.9 for ubuntu 12.04 32-bit?
