Description

In case of a problem with the sagetex install, one ends up with this:

...
sagetex.VersionError: versions of .sty and .py files do not match.
2016-09-08-060257.sagetex.sage was generated by sagetex.sty version "2012/01/16 v2.3.3-69dcb0eb93de", but
is being processed by sagetex.py version "2015/08/26 v3.0-92d9f7a".
Please make sure that TeX is using the sagetex.sty
from your current version of Sage; see
http://www.sagemath.org/doc/installation/sagetex.html.

However, that link currently redirects to another link, which breaks.

I searched the install guide for sagetex and found nothing: http://doc.sagemath.org/html/en/installation/search.html?q=sagetex&check_keywords=yes&area=default

So no clue what to do...

The bad link is not in the SageMath repository, but in SageTeX. I've opened a pull request to fix that.

The link you're looking for is http://doc.sagemath.org/html/en/tutorial/sagetex.html

Dan is not actively developing SageTeX right now, I think ... Note that there is also at least one bad link in Sage itself, see the SageTeX tutorial part. Maybe we should advertise https://github.com/dandrake/sagetex more - I will try to ask him offlist about adding people or even adding it to the SageMath GH organization, if that is possible.

See #22499 for putting this in the Sage repo. Alternately, one could take a fork and add this to the SageMath organization on Github, but this seems easier in the long run since it doesn't have a lot of use outside of Sage (yet).

  • Keywords sagetex added

SageTeX is now in the Sage repo at https://github.com/sagemath/sagetex so an update of that package ought to do it.

Instead of being dependent upon, this is a dependency of that ticket.

  • Work issues set to fix link on github, make new sagetex package

comment:8 Changed 2 years ago by kcrisman

This might also be fixed by fixing https://github.com/sagemath/sagetex/issues/17

comment:9 Changed 2 years ago by kcrisman

(This removal/move happened in #18405, incidentally.)

I think there is *still* a reference to the installation guide in SageTeX 3.1, but there is no longer any reference to this there. Is that true beyond the README but also the install script? I couldn't find that in the very brief spkg-install.

  • Dependencies set to #27024
  • Report Upstream changed from Reported upstream. No feedback yet. to Fixed upstream, in a later stable release.
  • Work issues fix link on github, make new sagetex package deleted

This has been fixed upstream (and some related issues have been fixed as well) so once #27024 is in this can be closed.
