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:
