I just ran the test and it shows this:

sage -t --long src/sage/repl/ # 9 doctests failed

Any concerns? I ran on non-root account.

Thanks, TT

You should never install or run Sage as root.

You are right that the test should run correctly at any time, whether just after installing or later on.

This forum is more related to questions about Sage. But anyway that is cool to have feedback!

Could you rerun the test on that particular file... namely do

sage -t --long $SAGE_ROOT/src/sage/repl/

where you have to replace $SAGE_ROOT by the location of your sage installation. Then post the full output to the!forum/sage-devel.

Does it matter if the test is run on root or non-root? I did a fresh installation with source code. Went into and test a few accounts then ran the test. So basically, the test can be run at anytime correct? Not right after the install?

I noticed the home machine I built didn't have any error with OpensSSL install. I found a post online that sort of stated that. So I installed OpenSSL on the work machine and ran "make test" which passed.
