2015-02-05 19:36:38 +0200 commented answer OpenSSL installed

I installed with the command ./sage -i openssl (so I assumed I used the sage one). So in the future, how would I upgrade it? Same with ./sage -i openssl?

Second questions is if I install libssl libssl-dev now, will it break sage?

Thanks, TT

2015-02-05 18:02:42 +0200 asked a question OpenSSL installed


I installed OpenSSL in which it corrected the errors below with "make testlong"

sage -t --long src/sage/repl/ # 9 doctests failed

./sage -i openssl

./sage -f python

make ssl

Anyways, my question is with OpenSSL installed even without the intention to use it, is the machine vulnerable to any future issues or do I have to actually configure and enable it?

Thanks, TT

2015-02-05 17:53:26 +0200 answered a question make testlong

I noticed the home machine I built didn't have any error with OpensSSL install. I found a post online that sort of stated that. So I installed OpenSSL on the work machine and ran "make test" which passed.

2015-02-05 00:37:07 +0200 commented answer make testlong

Does it matter if the test is run on root or non-root? I did a fresh installation with source code. Went into and test a few accounts then ran the test. So basically, the test can be run at anytime correct? Not right after the install?

2015-02-04 23:42:32 +0200 asked a question make testlong

I just ran the test and it shows this:

sage -t --long src/sage/repl/ # 9 doctests failed

Any concerns? I ran on non-root account.

Thanks, TT

2015-02-04 23:03:54 +0200 asked a question Browser needed

I just installed the application on Centos and will allow users to VNC over SSH. Besides the standard Firefox, are there any other plugins needed if they were going to use notebook()?

Thanks, TT

Thanks so much. Very nice to hear!

2015-02-04 18:49:48 +0200 asked a question Warning message when with notebook()

After running notebook(), the following warning. I read a few posts online regarding this with past version. Any insights on this version?

/usr/local/sage-6.4.1/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Crypto/Util/ PowmInsecureWarning: Not using mpz_powm_sec. You should rebuild using libgmp >= 5 to avoid timing attack vulnerability. _warn("Not using mpz_powm_sec. You should rebuild using libgmp >= 5 to avoid timing attack vulnerability.", PowmInsecureWarning)

2015-02-04 17:56:07 +0200 commented answer Multi-user environment

For each user that runs --> notebook(). When they are finished, what is the recommended method to close out the session. Control +C, or just close the terminal session?

2015-02-03 23:12:08 +0200 commented answer Multi-user environment

That was the confusion. I noticed that anybody who has command line access in the linux machine will have the admin account or the ability to reset it.

Thanks for the clarification.

I guess I am confused about the notebook() vs the syntax. How do I prevent the browser from opening up to an admin account when a regular user type "notebook()".

2015-02-02 20:35:11 +0200 answered a question Multi-user environment

I installed on an (non root )account but have given everyone read access. It is still installed in /usr/tmp/sage/sage-6.4.1 I am looking at this.

Confused about this. Does each user who logs into the server run ./sage (with their linux credential) or is it a one time startup (system level) and the user just opens the browser an enter the sage accounts?


2015-01-29 17:58:59 +0200 asked a question Multi-user environment


I just installed 6.4 Sage on Centos and was curious how each user will be accessing Sage. Do each user who log into the Centos machine just open a browser (localhost:8080) to log in with their credentials? Assuming ./sage runs at the start of the server bootup.

Thanks, TT
