I am running into the following after running sage for a while:

[Errno 31] Too many links:
'/home/f/.sage//temp/server.com/23163/'
 ** Error trying to create the Sage tmp directory in your home
directory.  A possible cause of this might be that you built or upgraded
Sage after typing 'su'.  You probably need to delete the directory
$HOME/.sage.

 ** Error trying to create the Sage tmp directory in your home
directory.  A possible cause of this might be that you built or upgraded
Sage after typing 'su'.  You probably need to delete the directory
$HOME/.sage.

The calculation then crashes. Any help in correcting this would be appreciated.

Have you tried following the directions and deleting the directory "$HOME/.sage"? (If you have any important data stored there, just rename it instead, so you don't lose anything.) Given the error messages, this means the directory "/home/f/.sage/".

Yes, I have tried cleaning out the temp... directory. This temporarily fixes the problem until I run the calculation a few more times with different parameters. Is there a call in sage I can use to clean up the temp directory?

Not the temp directory, but its parent, the entire .sage directory. Have you deleted it? Also, what version of Sage are you running, and how did you install it? (Built from scratch, installed from binary?)
