20191013 06:11:40 0500  answered a question  Building Sage 8.9 from source fails To use system's readline on on Ubuntu 16.04, one needs to install libncurses5dev and libreadlinedev (16.04 has a bug: the former is not a dependency of the latter, even though by right it should be) As far as building Sage's readline goes, unfortunately we have not figured out yet what exactly goes wrong with building Sage's readline on 16.04. As a workaround, in the file build/pkgs/readline/patches/0002ltinfo.patch replace the line with This shoud give a working readline built by Sage (hopefully) 
20191011 12:16:43 0500  commented answer  Building Sage 8.9 from source fails this is a symptome of underlinking in readline. In its infinite wisdom readline's devs refuse to fix this old bug; it needs to be linked with libtinfo or other suchlike library, and it keeps resufacings in various forms... 
20190913 04:14:58 0500  answered a question  SageAppliance not more maintained after 8.1? OVA is more awkward than the Cygwin build, so that's why it stopped. You might want to try Sage 8.8 http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/ww... Or if you comfortable with VirtualBox (or other VM) on Windows, you may just build Sage there from source.

20170718 04:30:22 0500  commented answer  Submatrix of a given matrix by deleting some rows and columns(For my case 2 rows and columns). Well, but this is a straightforward Python loop to write. In the loop, create two lists, say, ro, co, using range(), remove ith (resp. jth) elements from it, call A[ro,co].det()/A[ro,ro].det() to compute the corr. determinant ratio, store it in B.

20170209 14:05:41 0500  commented answer  Restricted usability of Singular after upgrade Why would you think this is Singular problem? Univariate polynomials are not handled by Singular in Sage, they are handled by either Flint, or NTL, or Givaro (the latter for finite fields only). We need more info to track your issue down. E.g. could you at least tell us the output of

20160726 10:42:10 0500  answered a question  Semimonomial transformation group will give you the underlying permutation group. It has 1 orbit in its natural action (on 8 points): You can convert it into a matrix group acting on GF(4)^8. Now you can compute orbits on vectors (see e.g. code in

20160404 13:23:39 0500  commented question  osx installation sounds like you've changed the default OS configuration, as on OSX the system python is still python2, and this means that you won't see any missing brackets in print, normally speaking. What is that extra hack that you have on? Homebrew? Anaconda? Something else? 
20151103 08:56:21 0500  commented answer  After upgrade to 6.9 we obtain SIGILL ... I take this as you have an upgraded Mac, right? And which version of OSX? (IMHO it's a nonstandard config anyway, and you'd be best off building from source.)

20150210 03:23:06 0500  answered a question  System of 3 equations in 3 variables with symbolic coefficients I very much doubt that there are closed form solutions for such a system. It looks like this would imply that univariate polynomial equations of arbitrary degrees have a closed form solution, which is wellknown not to be the case.

20150204 07:23:22 0500  commented answer  Multiuser environment in case you might like to know where the notebook files are: they are in ~/.sage/ for the account Sage (nb) is executed from.Thus each user in this configuration will have completely own set of notebooks. 
20150203 03:41:43 0500  commented answer  Multiuser environment a regular Linux user's notebook() will be run in his/her Linux account. They will be admin for this notebook server, by default (unless they specify another user in notebook() call, or log in via the browser to another, suitably created, nb account). 
20150203 03:33:11 0500  commented answer  Multiuser environment In the latter case you don't even need Sage nb users to have Linux accounts on the server, but watch out for security settings in this case... 
20150203 03:31:14 0500  commented answer  Multiuser environment There are two things you can do  either let each user on the machine to run Sage separately, just by running /usr/tmp/sage/sage6.4.1/sage, or you run a "public" Sage nb server. In the latter setup accounts on the (Linux) server have nothing to do with accounts on the Sage nb server.

One can see the port number if you start sage in terminal and do 'notebook()' at sage prompt. It will tell you which URL to open in browser.
