Description (last modified by jondo)

I would like to teach first-year students how to use QEPCAD to solve systems of rational inequalities (example).

sage-6.2.ova displays the qepcad help with qepcad?, but it cannot be used:

qepcad('(E x)[a x + b > 0]', vars='(a,b,x)')
Traceback (click to the left of this block for traceback)
RuntimeError: Unable to start QEPCAD

Btw., I get the same error at This should also be fixed. At qepcad integration works!

The inclusion procedure says that qepcad needs to become an "optional package" first, and I assume that the current qepcad-1.50.spkg has similar problems as the 1.54 spkg from #10224.

So please close this ticket as invalid for now. (I don't have the rights to do this.)

There are indeed too many systems on which this fails to install. Just got this error on my recent Gentoo Linux x86_64 system:

cd source; make   opt "CCo=g++" "FLAGSo=-O4" "CCd=g++" "FLAGSd=-g" "MAKE=make  "
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/sage-git/local/var/tmp/sage/build/qepcad-1.50/src/qesource/source'

I updated the description's QEPCAD link.
