18 The details are a bit long to explain but everything provided by sage is
19 currently split. Technically what is missing is some scripts from the spkg
20 sage_scripts (provided by our sage-baselayout ebuild). Most of the files in
21 $SAGE_LOCAL/bin of a vanilla install that starts with sage are provided
22 by this
23 spkg. And we omit a lot of them, some are already installed only on use flag
24 request. We could add more if it was useful and feasible from a package
25 management perspective.
27 I must say that talking with sage-developers interested in sage installed with
28 portage there is a possibility that some stuff may come back in some form once
29 we figured it out. Something like sage -combinat creates a new sage branch.
30 There is a possibility that we could allow such a branch to be created
31 inside a
32 user account (not system wide) and allow its use. But that's still some
33 way off
34 on my map. In fact it may come as a surprise to my fellow sage-on-gentoo devs.
