Hi there, I was trying to open the notebook interface from the Sage Shell command line. But after I typed in 'notebook()', a message pops up like ... no method available for opening 'http://localhost:8000'. Can anyone tell me what that means and how to fix it? Thanks a lot!

I am running on Windows 7 and using virtualbox as vm. I never used linux before. So any help would be great.

This means that, inside your virtual machine, Sage doesn't find a way to open the notebook. Probably because there is no web browser. Are you building your own VM? The virtual machine image downloadable on the sage web site should work.

You either install a web browser inside the VM or punch port 8000 through to the host and use the host web browser.

Thanks for your answer! Both ways work well.
