I have sage installed from pre-installed Sage binary. I wish to use function from the package "database_gap" When I issue a command sage -i database_gap

It gives me an error make: * No rule to make target 'all-toolchain'. Stop. Can someone help me?

I am using Linux Operating System (Linux Mint 18.1) 64 bit. Have Sage 8.1 installed by unzipping the sage-8.1-Ubuntu_16.04-x86_64.tar.bz2 in my ssytem.

Thanks Ajit

Could you please give us some informations about your system:

  • which OS ?
  • which binaries ?

EDIT : could you please installl the build-essentialpackage from yoour distro an try again ? If it does not work, you could try to install the packages that are listed at

If you still have a problem (it will probably be another message), you can report here or try to compile the whole Sage from source :
