Hello all, I am using Linux Mint 19.3 and installed SageMath 9.0 from the source. I am not sure what is going on , I even did the

sudo chown -R root:root ./SageMath

sudo ln -s /opt/SageMath/sage /usr/local/bin

sage

commands. I attached the error below. I apologize for the error being long, but I am not sure what any of this means. Thank you for all the help.

Oops, Sage crashed. We do our best to make it stable, but...

A crash report was automatically generated with the following information:
  - A verbatim copy of the crash traceback.
  - A copy of your input history during this session.
  - Data on your current Sage configuration.

It was left in the file named:
    '/tmp/tmpockv4tsi/Sage_crash_report.txt'
If you can email this file to the developers, the information in it will help
them in understanding and correcting the problem.

You can mail it to: sage-support at 
with the subject 'Sage Crash Report'.

If you want to do it now, the following command will work (under Unix):
mail -s 'Sage Crash Report' 

In your email, please also include information about:
- The operating system under which the crash happened: Linux, macOS, Windows,
  other, and which exact version (for example: Ubuntu 16.04.3, macOS 10.13.2,
  Windows 10 Pro), and whether it is 32-bit or 64-bit;
- How Sage was installed: using pip or conda, from GitHub, as part of
  a Docker container, or other, providing more detail if possible;
- How to reproduce the crash: what exact sequence of instructions can one
  input to get the same crash? Ideally, find a minimal yet complete sequence
  of instructions that yields the crash.

To ensure accurate tracking of this issue, please file a report about it at:

The problem seems that sage created a repository with wrong permissions. Could you post the output of the command

ln -l /home/luis/.sage/

This will show the permission on the repository `/home/luis/.sage/ where Sage is supposed to save things such as the command line history.

Do you happen to have started Sage as root? (ie something like sudo sage) That might explain the problem.

Apparently, there is an issue with the file permissions. If you don't need to have SageMath installed system wide, I would recommend to install it as an ordinary user (no root) in your home directory:

cd ~
git clone https://github.com/sagemath/sage.git
cd sage 
MAKE="make -j8" make 2>&1

should work, provided you have installed the prerequisites for Ubuntu-based systems.

You could also remove the directory /home/luis/.sage/. It will be created when Sage starts again, I hope with the correct permissions.
