I am trying to install from sage-7.4-OSX_10.11.6-x86_64.app . I get a long terminal message about python errors. After that, whenever I try to open a terminal or notebook in Sage, I again get long terminal messages about moved directories. I did not move anything.

We'll need to see the last Python error message. Also, do you have Anaconda installed?

Previous answers have indicated that removing a single line from a configuration file will allow Sage to run with Anaconda installed:

Apparently Anaconda adds itself to the $PATH variable through .bashrc during installation. Removing any references to Anaconda in your $PATH should allow Sage to run.

The other alternative which is known to work is to uninstall Anaconda completely.
