After installing the Python 3 package from #17607 on OS X 10.10.3, Xcode 6.3.1, I see

/Users/palmieri/Desktop/Sage_stuff/git/sage/src/bin/sage-env: line 411: 33785 Abort trap: 6           "$SAGE_ROOT/local/bin/python" -c 'import pkg_resources; pkg_resources.get_distribution("matplotlib").version' 2> /dev/null
Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: unable to load the file system codec
  File "/Users/palmieri/Desktop/Sage_stuff/git/sage/local/lib/python/encodings/", line 123
    raise CodecRegistryError,\
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
/usr/local/bin/sage: line 134: 33763 Abort trap: 6           "$SAGE_ROOT/src/bin/sage" "$@"

The same happened on a machine with just the Xcode command-line tools installed.

To be completely clear, I got this failure using the branch at #18517 because git trac checkout 17607 failed earlier today. But I don't think #18517 has anything to do with the error here.

Hmm, this seems harder to fix than I first thought. Sage has been setup to really only have one version of Sage installed at a time (there is a heavy reliance on have PYTHONHOME set, which breaks having multiple versions installed).

  • Milestone changed from sage-7.3 to sage-duplicate/invalid/wontfix
  • Status changed from new to needs_review

#22756 is a duplicate of this one. Since there is a branch at #22756, let's close this.

Closing tickets in the sage-duplicate/invalid/wontfix module with positive_review (i.e. someone has confirmed they should be closed).
