I just installed Sagemath 7.6 on my Fedora 20 system, and ran ./sage for the first time, and got a crash message after it went through several patch operations. The resulting crash file is as below. Please advise if any action is needed to recover.

Did you install:

  • using the Fedora package manager,
  • using a binary from the download page on the SageMath website,
  • building Sage from source,
  • other?

Any particular reason for installing SageMath 7.6 instead of the latest version, SageMath 8.2?

Would you consider asking that on the sage-support mailing list ?

The first time you run Sage, make sure that in your shell, python will run Python2 and not Python3.

For example, do you have Anaconda installed and coming first in your PATH? If so, try removing it from your PATH the first time you run Sage.
