I run Sage on my MacOS using terminal. As part of a project I am doing, I need to use the lrs engine:

def getVolume(self,eng='lrs'):
    needs Sage 5.9 for 'lrs' engine
    return self.poly.volume(engine=eng)*factorial(self.poly.dim())

However, this getVolume() function does not seem to work and always returns 0. So, I did some research and I am pretty sure my system does not have the Lrs engine at all. I checked for Lrs using this code: and it told me that Lrs is not there.

I am quite confused about this since I downloaded Sage very recently (just 1-2 months ago) and it should be there? Am I doing something wrong? If it needs to be installed, how would I go about downloading this library so I can use it?

In Sage, LRS is provided by the lrslib optional package.

If you are building Sage from source, change to the Sage root directory and run the following:

$ make configure  # or ./bootstrap
$ ./configure --enable-lrslib -q
$ make -s V=0

(Do not type the dollar signs, which in the code block above represent the shell prompt.)

If you installed Sage from the Sage-macOS app, you will need to build from source, as the app currently only support installing extra packages if they can be installed using pip.
