Hi experts.

I use sagemath 4 months ago. Now, when i louch any .sage file this appears:

/usr ...

Which version of sage are you running? Not the best advice, but have you tried reinstalling sage? Also, could you provide more details, such as a small `.sage` file which produces this? It seems like there is some gdb output, are you running sage under gdb?

Hi! Comparing two similar .sage codes i note that the porblem maybe is in the 'grah' module like this: import numpy as np number_sticks=np.array([200]) b=50. h=b N=5 u=1 number_experiments=1 stick_density =number_sticks/(b**2) array_x1=np.array([1,2,3,4,5]) array_y1=np.array([1,2,3,4,5]) array_x2= np.array([2,3,4,7,29]) array_y2= np.array([2,3,4,7,29]) lineas=[] for j in xrange(N): lineas.append(line([(array_x1[j],array_y1[j]),(array_x2[j],array_y2[j])],rgbcolor=(0,0,1), thickness=3)) grafico=sum(lineas) grafico.axes_range=[-0.5*1.3*b,0.5*1.3*b,-0.5*1.3*h,0.5*1.3*h] #xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax save(grafico,'/home/joseluismietta/Escritorio/grafico_numero {0}{1}.png'.format(int(N),int(u)), figsize=[b,h], axes=False, dpi=600)

Did you try removing your .sage/ directory? Especially your ./sage/init.sage file might be causing trouble if nonempty. (Of course, removing this would remove your notebook! But you could at least try renaming .sage/ to .sage-old/ temporarily; Sage would then create a new one and perhaps the problem would go away, and then you could do further debugging.)

Hi! I only use SAGE in my laptop. I dont use sage-notebook. In this case, please correct me if I'm wrong, I must do this: Remove ./sage/ directory. (where is it?) Remove /usr/lib/sagemath/ Remove .hgrc file (Where are these?) Reinstall sagemath. Is this ok? Thanks a lot

Do you know what a "home directory" is? It looks like yours might be `/home/joseluismietta`. Then you would remove the directory `.sage/` in that directory. I wouldn't worry about the `.hgrc` stuff but I was just trying to be complete (in that other post). You may not even have to reinstall Sage itself!

What obout remove /usr/lib/sagemath/ ? Thanks a lot

Well, I assume this is your actual Sage installation, so, yes. Sorry, I kind of figured that was obvious if you wanted to remove it. But I would try just moving the `.sage/` directory *first*; if that's all that's wrong, then you don't have to delete your Sage installation.

Hi experts!

I remove .sage/ folder, then remove /usr/lib/sagemath and reinstall SAGE. The porblem is not fixed!!

Is it possible you have downloaded a binary not for your *exact* setup? For instance, for a slightly different version of Linux?

HI! I installed it from repositories doing: apt-add-repository -y ppa:aims/sagemath apt-get update apt-get install sagemath-upstream-binary. So I think i've the right version. Anyway, the problem start when automatically the version upgrade to 5.11 (no porblem with v 5.10). I have Ubuntu 13.04 64 bits. I can try re-install SAGE from binary. What file of the list must I download and Install? Please help! Thanks!!

Unfortunately, I don't know anything about linux PPAs etc.
