Hi all,

I am running SageMath version 7.3, Release Date: 2016-08-04 on a university computer.

When I try to run the code:

S = PolynomialRing(QQ, 5, "x", implementation="singular")

I get in return:

ValueError: The singular implementation is not known for multivariate polynomial rings

However, on my personal laptop, where I run version 8.1, I do not have this error. Is there anyway to fix this on 7.3 without updating, since I do not have administrator permissions. Thank you for your time!

I see two options:

  • ask your admins to update Sage (explain your problem, they will be convinced that you ask for good reasons).
  • if you have enough space, compile recent version of Sage in your account on the university computer. There is no need for administration rights for that. If the distro appears in the existing Sage binaries, you can just unpack it.

Hi! Thank you for your input! Our IT department is currently undergoing restructuring and so I have not been able to get in touch with the admins, as that was the first thing I tried to do! I will see if I can compile a recent version of Sage on the account. I believe I can try to get that distro, thank you!
