When building sage-2.8.12, there are two circular links in sage/local/lib/python2.5:

achille% pwd
achille% ls -l pyt*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 zimmerma spaces 6 2007-11-14 09:53 python -> python
lrwxrwxrwx 1 zimmerma spaces 9 2007-11-14 09:53 python2.5 -> python2.5

I thought we did fix that a while ago. Kate did report at least a similar issue. I will look into this in this release cycle.

  • Summary changed from circular link in sage/local/lib/python2.5 to [with spkg] circular link in sage/local/lib/python2.5

Ok, while we fixed the issue in the python.spkg itself the same problem pops up when we install the mercurial.spkg. The spkg at

fixes that issue and actually creates an hg repo inside the spkk as well as does some general cleanup. Another python based spkg might still recreate those links, so this might not be over yet.
