Fedora 13 Sage install in VM

asked 2010-10-26 02:14:42 +0200

Hello all,

I'm fairly new to linux, but I'm trying to use the Fedora 13 binary in a Fedora 13 VM.

When I follow the instructions, this is what I get:

| Sage Version 4.5.3, Release Date: 2010-09-04                       |
| Type notebook() for the GUI, and license() for information.        |
/home/dterrell/Desktop/sage-4.5.3-linux-64bit-fedora_release_13_goddard-x86_64-Linux/local/bin/python: /home/dterrell/Desktop/sage-4.5.3-linux-64bit-fedora_release_13_goddard-x86_64-Linux/local/bin/python: cannot execute binary file

When I looked for this problem online, they suggested that the user may have the wrong version, and to check with 'uname -a'. here's the result of that:

[dterrell@localhost sage-4.5.3-linux-64bit-fedora_release_13_goddard-x86_64-Linux]$ uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain #1 SMP Thu May 6 18:44:12 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Any suggestions?

The "uname -a" output indicates you are running a 32-bit build of the OS, not the 64-bit version. So you have a build mismatch.
