SAGE - A Open Source Computer Algebra System
« on: August 17, 2011, 06:57:29 PM »
Now, after many days, i succeeded in installing Sage on Tinycore.
Sage is a very mighty, and big (1.5GB if not in the tcz) math software, which is already near its proprietary competitors (Maple, Mathematica, Matlab...)

I want to share how i installed it: (btw: puppy sage-sfs-files are not working)
Download the binary tar.lzma release from the sagemath website: sage-4.7-linux-32bit-ubuntu_10.04_lts-i686-Linux.tar.lzma,
extract it, set SAGE_ROOT="/home/wstein/build/sage-4.7" in the sage script in the extracted sage-folder, (optional: delete sage-flags.txt in sage-folder/local/lib if you really want to ignore processor flags). Create a .tcz (requires of the sage.folder and mount it to: /home/wstein/build/sage-4.7 (or create a absolute path tcz and just add it to tce/optional like recommended for tinycore), add a new version of libgfortran.3.so to /usr/lib,(dont forget to add to /opt/.filetool.lst) and start sage :). Notebook works too.

In the tcz it's "only" 560MB :D. The wallpaper by the way:

If someone is interested in my system, I've attached my onboot.lst.
I'm a big fluxbox fan, because it does things, even modern window managers
of other OS'es can't do today: gab.bplaced.net/fluxbox.ogv
Thanks for Tinycore, it's a great system :)
