I installed sage 6.10 through

sudo apt-get install sagemath-upstream-binary-full

on my ubuntu machine.

When I start sage shell, I got

patching /usr/lib/sagemath/src/build/cythonized/sage/structure/list_clone.c
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/sagemath/", line 85, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/sagemath/", line 51, in save
    with open(self.filename, 'wb') as f:
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/lib/sagemath/src/build/cythonized/sage/structure/list_clone.c'

Is this going to be a problem?
