First, something that might be helpful is to try typing

"sage -ldist VER"

which ends up running


which is supposed to make a "stand alone" version of SAGE without dependencies. I.e., a tarball that you can "python install" into a standard Python2.5 install, assuming you have all dependencies.

It is "slightly" behind, i.e,. I haven't used it in months, so it is not likely to work. But it is a first step in the direction of what you want.


I just tried "sage -ldist" and it failed because it isn't aware of how I reorganized where the custom ipython config files go; basically, it fails in creating an ipython config for SAGE. But it gets close -- in particular, if you run it you'll get a directory


that has a file in it.

I haven't kept it up only because the user base until now has not actually requested it. I'll list that "sage -ldist" doesn't quite work as a bug on the tracker, so I can fix it soon.
