Hi, I've been using sage.5.11 on VirtualBox running on a Windows 7 computer. I would like to know a couple of things:

  1. How to go from the Notebook mode to a command line mode
  2. How to return to the Notebook mode after I clicked on a link to view truncated output
  3. Booting into Command Line SAGE instead of Notebook mode as it is doing currently

Thanks for your help in advance.

X is launched from /home/sage/.bash_profile, which runs .xinitrc, which starts chromium in kiosk mode. You can change either of them (I would suggest to make a VM snapshot first).

Having said that, you'll probably be better off with doing a full Linux installation in a new virtual machine and then compiling Sage yourself. Its easy enough...
