I looked around (maybe not comprehensive enough, sorry) but which sage binary am I suppose to install for OSX 10.7.x OS? From the download website I find

sage-5.8-OSX-64bit-10.8-x86_64-Darwin.dmg sage-5.8-OSX-64bit-10.8-x86_64-Darwin-app.dmg sage-5.8-OSX-64bit-10.6-x86_64-Darwin.dmg sage-5.8-OSX-64bit-10.6-x86_64-Darwin-app.dmg

the 10.6 or 10.8?

I know the differences between the sage.dmg and sage-app.dmg.

I have tried 10.8 with segmentation fault but 10.6 seems to be working. But am I suppose to use the 10.6 binary on 10.7? Or do need to upgrade my 10.7 to 10.8?

thanks -simon

10.6 on 10.7 should be fine. Don't upgrade just for Sage! Also, it's not too hard to build from source, as it turns out - even for a newbie.

If you need, there are now binaries for OS X 10.7 on the 'OS X > intel' download page.
