Hi, I'm trying to get Sage installed on my Mac, which is running the OS X El Capitan V10.11.6 , I've downloaded the .dmg file named sage-7.3-OSX_10.11.6-x86_64.dmg and extracted its contents to /Applications, opened this folder named SageMath and there I opened the sage file in the terminal as it was written on the README file.

I keep getting this error:

RecursionError: maximum recursion depth exceeded during compilation

(Some text about sage)

ERROR : The Sage installation tree has moved

from /Users/buildslave-sage/slave/binary_pkg/build/source/SageMath/jc4b6yulaujayb9sr94ia88eourzeqip0oidma to /Applications/SageMath

(More text)

I've searched around a bit, and found out it might have something to do with having anaconda installed, which I have, but from there I really can't progress much, as I am fairly new to UNIX systems.

I really appreciate any help you guys can give me!

Try uninstalling Anaconda:

does this mean I can't have anaconda and sage on the same mac?

No, it seems you just have to remove a line from your .bashrc, see
