I am trying to install from source version 4.6. The computer is a Dell server running Fedora 11.

boole[~]$ uname -a
Linux #1 SMP Thu Feb 11 07:06:34 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Here is the end of install.log:

If you want to try to fix the problem yourself, *don't* just cd to

Instead, the following commands setup all environment variables
correctly and load a subshell for you to debug the error:
(cd '/scratch/local/sage-4.6/spkg/build/pari-2.4.3.svn-12577.p9' && '/scratch/local/sage-4.6/sage' -sh)
When you are done debugging, you can type "exit" to leave the

Any ideas?

Fedora is a chronically unstable distro. =) Ubuntu 10.x and 9.x compile great!

the "quote" or "format code" buttons in the editor will do the trick of inserting the preformatted text.

For whatever it's worth, on my Fedora 11 system I had to do:

export SAGE_DEBUG=yes

Before doing the make. This solved a "similar" problem, but I'm not sure if it's really the same problem or not. Might be worth a try. There were other work-arounds posted on

but the DEBUG thing above worked best in my situation.

Thanks! This worked perfectly.
