Description (last modified by )
When SAGE_PATH
(and hence also PYTHONPATH
) contains ".
" (the current working directory) during the installation of sagenb
, Python is able to find sagenb
in its path and therefore refuses to add it to easy-install.pth
. Later, Sage won't find it, leading to the following error message:
ImportError: No module named sagenb.misc.sphinxify Error importing ipy_profile_sage - perhaps you should run %upgrade? WARNING: Loading of ipy_profile_sage failed.
This is a follow-up to #10176, and there has been some discussion on sage-release.
Apply only
10192-remove_dot_from_PYTHONPATH_in_sage-spkg.2.patch to the Sage root repository.

Ok, after changing some instances of PYTHON_PATH
to PYTHONPATH
(argh!), the attached patch works for me.
You can try setting SAGE_PATH
to something containing ".
" (e.g. ":/foo/bar:.:/baz
, too), of course also doing export SAGE_PATH
, then [re]installing the SageNB 0.8.7 spkg (or the newer ones, p1 or p2, but these aren't necessary, i.e., the patch here fixes the issue in a different way, not needing an additional work-around).

As far as I know, Cygwin (as opposed to MS DOS/Windows) also uses ":
" to separate directories in search paths, so this should work for Cygwin as well.
(Other shell and even Python scripts in Sage also hard-code that character.)

Applying the patch give me
patching file sage-spkg Hunk #1 succeeded at 292 (offset -8 lines).
Are you sure that you didn't change anything else from a vanilla 4.6.rc0 ?
Anyway, for what concerns openSUSE 11.1 and 11.3 the patch perfectly works. I also checked it on sage.sagemath.org. So I'm ok to give it a positive review, except for the Cygwin question where I'm not competent. Please do it on my behalf as soon as you have Mike answer.

Ok, not based on vanilla rc0; I've also applied a completely unrelated patch to sage-spkg
(removing "x
" from tar
by default, #10040).

Apply to scripts repo. Based on vanilla Sage 4.6.rc0. (Updated version, handles more weird cases, too.)
comment:8 Changed 9 years ago by
I've uploaded a slightly improved patch, this time really based on vanilla 4.6.rc0.
Try again...
(also with SAGE_PATH=".::./././//./://bingo//:baz:::://///:./.:."
and alike) ;-)
Although it might still fail with e.g. SAGE_PATH="./foo/.."
(if ./foo/
happens to exist in the directory setup
is run in), but this would at least for SageNB be catched by the 0.8.7.p{1,2} spkgs...

ping...
(Still needs review, only the Cygwin question seems still open, though I believe it'll also work on Cygwin.)
The patch will almost certainly have to get rebased, haven't tried yet.

Wow, the patch still applied (with an offset of only a few lines); I've rebased it on Sage 4.7.1.rc2 despite of that to now apply cleanly.
There are currently some concurrent tickets also patching sage-spkg
though.

New attempt to clean up even nastier paths (including .., ./., etc) (Ignore the other patch)
comment:12 Changed 8 years ago by
Please check trac_10192-remove_dot_and_more_from_PYTHONPATH_in_sage.spkg.patch against other platforms. I have checked it on Linux x86_64 and it cleans up nasty examples like the one mentioned earlier ".::./././//./://bingo//:baz:::://///:./.:."
. (Indented the paste below :))
~ $ AAAA=".::./././//./://bingo//:baz:::://///:./.:." ~ $ new_pp="" ~ $ IFS=":" ~ $ for x in $AAAA; do if [ -n "$x" -a -n "$(echo "$x" | sed -e 's/[\.\/]\+//g')" ]; then if [ -z "$new_pp" ]; then new_pp="$x" else new_pp="${new_pp}:$x" fi fi done ~ $ echo "$new_pp" //bingo//:baz
This is against 4.7.0. I will later try to upload it rebased against 4.7.2.

And what's the advantage of running sed
(and twice test

) multiple times in a loop? B)
I'm not sure right now whether my patch is up-to-date btw., as the currently attached one doesn't remove redundant slashs and (e.g.) ./

The main point in the patch is the separator that is redefined to ':'.
Now when you run a loop through the variable, it loops through all the parts separated by ':'. Once each part is separated, you can check whether it is empty (hence the first test -n "$x"
), or whether it consists of only . and / (hence the echo + sed). This is important because this catches all the bad cases like ..
, ./.
, .
, etc. ( In relation to #11914, I tried to cd to devel/sage/sage and ran sage as SAGE_PATH=.. sage -n
and it failed to run. So we should definitely weed out at least ..
by itself. ) I do feel that it is over-engineered, but I haven't been able to come up with a better solution that catches all the cases.
Since all the scripts in Sage are trying to conform to POSIX you need the echo + sed. In pure bash, you can replace the "$( echo "$x" | sed ... )"
with simply "${x//[\.\/]}"

Well, I know IFS
, but I don't want to run it in a loop; that was my point.
My improved code snippet (simplified and catching additional instances; using a single invocation of sed
) looks like this:
$ echo $EXAMPLE; echo; echo ":$EXAMPLE:" | sed \ -e 's|/\+|/|g' \ -e 's|:\(\./\)\+|:|g' \ -e 's|\(/\.\)\+:|:|g' \ -e 's|\(:\.\)\+:|:|g' \ -e 's|:\+|:|g' -e 's|^:\+||' -e 's|:\+$||' .::./././//./://bingo//:baz:::://///:./.:. /bingo/:baz:/
This is important because this catches all the bad cases like
..
,./.
,.
, etc.
We only have to catch ".
" (i.e., the current working directory) here.
(In relation to #11914, I tried to cd to devel/sage/sage and ran sage as
SAGE_PATH=.. sage -n
and it failed to run. So we should definitely weed out at least..
by itself.)
IMHO not. If you put things into SAGE_PATH
, you have to live with the results (or side-effects) in that case. Or we have to do that in sage-sage
, before we (try to) start the notebook only, independently of the fix to sage-env
at #11914 (and of course sage-spkg
, which is patched here).
A better approach in the case of the notebook would perhaps be to directly test whether any component of PYTHONPATH
yields devel/sage-*/
(or has a subdirectory sage
with an __init__.py
file in it), or, probably easiest, prepend the correct directory to PYTHONPATH
before running sage-notebook
.
(We should better discuss the latter on #11914.)

New patch looks good to me. I will leave it to people who actually had the problem(s) to report back and change this to "positive review."
Personally, I had no problems in getting Sage compiled and up and running on two different Linux distributions, and with sage-4.7.0 and sage-4.7.2_alpha3.

Update patch to sage-4.8.
This has positive review from my side. If there is nothing else holding it up, then it should be merged, in my opinion.

This needs work because "\+" in sed scripts isn't portable. You can replace "X\+" by "XX*", which is equivalent.

Is \{1,\}

?

As far as I can tell, yes. But I consider "XX*" to be more readable than "X\{1,\}", especially for short strings X, which is the case here.

From
sage-env
:We shouldn't add
$SAGE_PATH
there if it is empty btw., but the removal of ".
" fromPYTHONPATH
should be performed insage-spkg
I think.(
$SAGE_PATH
is also appended to an overwritten(?!)PYTHONPATH
insage-doctest
.)
