I'm pretty sure the answer to this is yes (for instance, the VirtualBox instructions strongly imply it), but I don't see it here, so I might as well ask it.

  • Can one do development (e.g., sage -b) on the VirtualBox image with no prereqs?
  • If not, what are the minimum additions needed (such as yum/apt-get foo)?

The script that generates the virtual machine image compiles Sage from source inside the virtual machine. So everything that is required to develop is pretty much guaranteed to be available.

What would be cool would be to also run a ajax shell and editor on the virtual machine on some other port, then you could literally do everything with just a web browser. Sadly I haven't implemented that yet ;-)

Great, that's what I suspected, but it's nice to know *why* it works. Thanks!
