How to run SAGE MATH on ubuntu 11.04
In my six week training i got the project related to sage math..Sage is a free open-source mathematics software system licensed under the GPL. It combines the power of many existing open-source packages into a common Python-based interface. my task was to complete study of sage and writing a python script for sage.
HOW TO INSTALL SAGE
1.)first of all download the sage binary from the link
2.)choose your mirror for downloading..well i used the following mirror for fast downloading
3.)select your version 32 bit or 64 bit.
4.)after the completion of download you will get a file with the extensions of .tar.lzma.it can be easily extracted in ubuntu linux using the command in terminal
“tar –lzma -xvf sage-*…tar.lzma” command
5.)if you are not so good with terminal then write click on the downloaded file and select extract here.
6.)when the file will be extracted completely open the terminal(alt+ctrl+t) and type following commands
cd /”path of the directory where sage file is located”/
cd /”name of the sage directory”/
if tou are able to run above commands successfully then in the terminal you will get the output like this. i downloaded file in the downloads directory and name of sage file is sage4.7
- then type “./sage” and you will able to run sage sucessfullly..if then any problem persist than first run command “sudo apt-get install gfortran” and then again again run start sage from terminal using “./sage”,, 🙂
