I use a "new" laptop, Lenovo Thinkpad T510 with Ubuntu 11.10. I have on it a not too good install of sage 4.7.2.(It means there were some error when it was installed, but it seems, it runs, but there are errors) I did'nt found any way install or upgrade Sage: 1. From source there is a problem with installing the python package (It is true for 4.6, 4.7.x, 4.8) 2. The upgrade says, "There are uncommitted changes in the Sage root repository". Please, I don't understand mercurial and i don't want learn it. 3. From binary of 4.8 the answer is "No module named _md5"
