I have SageMath 7.3 installed from binaries and 7.6 compiled from source on my debian linux system, but in both, the python 2 kernel keeps dying when I use it in jupyter. It just dies, restarts, dies etc., making it entirely unusable. Did anyone experience this problem before? What could I do to get it to run? Thanks for your help!

i had a similar issue in the past (kernel dies, restarts, dies etc) with SageMath 7.5.1. the problem arises if i open the kernel (sage -n jupyter) in the same directory as a custom Sage package (meaning there are some .py files and an __init__.py, and the package is also available as from xx import yy). don't know what is the real cause of the problem, but it is solved if i start the notebook from another directory (eg. the parent directory). maybe this applies to your case too?

Thanks, but even if I start it from the home directory, I get the same problem, even when using the freshly downloaded sage-7.6-Debian_GNU_Linux_8-x86_64.tar.bz2
