I had the same problem as you. I finally installed zeromq in the way I have described here.

Hope it works for you too!

(please let me know... I am curious)

Thanks for the replies!

Actually, the above-mentioned packages were all installed... but I finally made it!

Here is the procedure I used, in case anyone else had the same problem:

1) I just manually entered the directory:

cd /usr/lib/sagemath/spkg/build/zeromq-2.2.0.p0

2) I started the sage shell:

sage -sh

3) I manually installed the package:

sudo ./spkg-install

In this way, everything goes smoothly. Of course, I still don't know why the automatic installation fails (also the installation of "sage-optional" from the repository fails!), but at least I did it.

Thanks, Andrea

2013-04-23 11:09:18 +0100 asked a question [solved] no way to install zeromq under sage 5.8

Hi there,

I have been trying for days to install zeromq under fresh installations of Sage 5.8 on two different machines, one with Ubuntu 12.04.2 (32-bit), and the other with Ubuntu 12.10 (64-bit). I tried to install zeromq by means of:

./sage -i zeromq

as well as installing "sagemath-optional" from the repository. In all cases, the installation fails apparently because of this:


checking alloca.h usability... no

checking alloca.h presence... yes

configure: WARNING: alloca.h: present but cannot be compiled

configure: WARNING: alloca.h: check for missing prerequisite headers?

configure: WARNING: alloca.h: see the Autoconf documentation

configure: WARNING: alloca.h: section "Present But Cannot Be Compiled"

configure: WARNING: alloca.h: proceeding with the compiler's result


(The full log is here.)

What's wrong? Can anybody help me?

Thanks, Andrea

PS. On one of the two machines, I also compiled gcc 4.7.2 (sage -f gcc) but it did not help at all.

Hallo, I am having exactly the same problem. Compiling gcc 4.7.2 (sage -f gcc) did not help, unfortunately.
