Dear all, this is my first post to gentoo-science and I am writing because I have some problems running experimental code from the sage project. My issue is the following: I have sci-mathematics/sage-4.7-r2 installed from the sage-on-gentoo overlay and I would like to install the combinat queue; I am following these instructions: http://wiki.sagemath.org/combinat/MercurialStepByStep The command I am supposed to run is # sage -combinat install unfortunately -combinat is not recognized by sage as a valid option. I browsed a little bit around the filesystem and I noticed that $SAGE_ROOT is empty (except for some documentation) while on other installations of sage (not using the ebuilds) there is plenty of stuff including a devel/combinat folder. Is there an option I can use when installing sage to allow for experimental sources? or is there any other way I can use queues without installing sage not using portage? Thanks VulK PS: some weird behaviour: % sage -h ---------------------------------------------------------------------- | Sage Version 4.7, Release Date: 2011-05-23 | ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Optional arguments: file.<sage|py|spyx> -- run given .sage, .py or .spyx files -advanced -- list all command line options(Continue reading)
