Description

{{{>

Yep... My $HOME/.sage belonged to "root". I have no idea why that happened either... Maybe I used a "sudo" when I shouldn't... (But I really think I just used to "make".) In any case, a "sudo chown -R" fixed it.

Yes, this is a known bug in the install process. SAGE get's run during the install, which can cause some problems like you just had if the user doing the build is root but the $HOME for root is not /root.

Sage should *definitely* be allowed to run during the build. That's just the way it is.
