Run multiple instances of Sage

Is it possible to run multiple instances of Sage? If I try, the second one complains that Sage crashed and lets me send a bug report. But Sage did not crash, it is just that another instance is going. Is it intended? Is there any workaround?

(I might use the notebook to do multiple things a time, I guess, but I really work better the the IPython console)

There should be no problem, i frequently do that without any issue (on Debian GNU/Linux jessie, from a compiled version of Sage).

Could you please give more details of your case:

  • which version of Sage did you use ?
  • which OS ?
  • did you install Sage from the binaries, and which ones ?
  • did you compile Sage yourself ?
  • which command did you type precisely to get the error ?
  • which error message did you get ?
  • ... ?

Apparently you are right. I use Sage 7.0 on Debian unstable. I installed Sage unpacking the file distributed on Sage's website (for amd64). However, probably I did (by mistake) checkout another version and then checkout again versio 7.0. This might have corrupted something. I tried on another computer (same environment, but without that error with checkout) and it works. So probably it is my fault and that is the culprit.
