I recently installed Sage 6.7 from source on my home computer, running OSX 10.9 (Mavericks). It is sloooooow. Just starting Sage from a terminal window takes a good two minutes; something simple like using the ? feature can take up to a minute; and serious power computation is hopeless. My computer has plenty of RAM and disk space, so I don't think that's the problem. I had the same problems with the previous version (5.something), but on other computers the performance is much better. I would be very grateful for suggestions about how to speed things up, particularly from others who have encountered this issue. Thanks!

From source? That sound really strange then. You may want to post on the sage-devel Google group about this, especially regarding any profiling you can do while it starts up.
