2012-11-28 16:02:23 +0100 answered a question Sage 5.3 on a Dell Poweredge 1650 running Lubuntu 12.04

I have found two different methods to install Ubuntu 12.04 on a Dell poweredge 1750. The first is by far the easier of the two. Simply install Ubuntu 10.04.4 and run the updates, then execute this command.


You may need to be root or a sudo user to run this command.

I managed to get a Server running today, I had to switch to Ubuntu 10.04.4 for an operating system. I am also watching code compile on one of my PowerEdge 1650's running Ubuntu 12.04.1.

Thanks for all who responded to my post.

While you are logged into your admin account in the web browser. Click on the settings link in the upper right corner. This will put you on the Account Settings page, here you will click on the Manage Users link right below where it says Account Settings. This moves you to the Users page. Find the name of the User whose password you want to reset and click on the Reset link next to it.

Here is the link to the 5.1 version of sage.

The easy way to install in a VM is to download the pre-built sage.ova file. This file needs to be imported into your virtual machine manager. However when I went to find a link to the one I downloaded a couple days ago it is no longer there. The second way is to install the linux operating system you prefer into the virtual machine manager of your choice. The standard options are Virtualbox and VMware player for free versions. Once you get that done, you need a little linux know-how to install the latest version of sage. You can find your favorite flavor of ubuntu here, its linux for everyone.

if you are using a linux environment look into the passwd command. You really didn't supply enough information as to how you are running the program. however the passwd command works with most linux distibutions.

The location of the sage files, are in the virtual hard drive of the Virtual Machine. You can look at the preferences of your "virtualbox" in your virtualbox VM manager to find out where that hard drive lives, but knowing that may be of no help. If you are running Windows 7 use the handy dandy search feature to locate the "sage" file inside the Windows 7 VM. Hope that points you in the right direction.

I have versions in VMware running as well, just so I could learn what the program does. My issue lies in, this needs to be installed on a rack mounted server(legacy) that lives in our college campus DMZ. I can find a bunch of documentation to install and test the software, but only about half of it actually works. I am a student employee at the college and I get to put in 5 to 10 hours a week on this install. I was at the college until 2 AM last night and managed to get a sage version 4.3.2 compiled and running on Ubuntu 10.04.4. Well almost running, I had to install 6 more packages than the documentation I had said to install. I now have sage working at the command line level and in my local browser, which pops up nice and pretty when I run the notebook command. My problem is I need to be able to connect to this server from all over the campus, yet can't connect from the same VLAN. I could go with a virtualized solution, but then I would need to write the scripts that start the virtual machine manager, and then start the virtual machine itself. Plus I would have to write the scripts that would shut the virtual machines down when the system reboots for updates. Trying to get this done while taking my final semester of Cisco Networking, leaves little time to plow through mounds of paperwork, and try to figure this out. If all else fails maybe I can just burn all the math students a live sage CD. Thanks for your input Dirk, I wish it solved my delema

2012-11-10 19:08:01 +0100 asked a question Sage 5.3 on a Dell Poweredge 1650 running Lubuntu 12.04

Trying to install sage 5.3 server on a dell poweredge 1650 running Lubuntu 12.04. I have been battling with this install for quite some time, our previous sage server ran on a poweredge 1750 in a Virtualbox VM, using Ubuntu 10.04 with a gnome GUI (very minimal). We had other VMs running on that server that have been relocated, so the consensus was to simply build a new sage server using a minimal LXDE desktop on the 1750. This was the first hurdle, 12.04 doesn't seem to like to load the network drivers from the mini install CD, no DVD drive. This prompted me to use a 1650 that the operating system loads fine on. However the new sage 5.3 spits out errors like this " This sage install was built on a machine that supports instructions that are not available on this computer. Sage will likely fail." I have a two pronged attack going on right now, one is trying to make our old virtual machine run on 12.04 just to get the math department a sage server. The second approach was to try and compile sage on my other 1650, and see if that would fly. Neither of these approaches have done me much good, and I am running out of hair to pull out. Anyone out there has any tips and tricks they would like to share on this matter?
