<somos> when I do 'sage -optional' it tried to make a temp file in SAGE_ROOT ... <somos> This is ok if you are running as root user. ... <mvngu> From the help: <mvngu> -optional -- list all optional packages that can be downloaded <somos> Anyway, the problem is the temp file in SAGE_ROOT. <somos> It should be in /tmp instead. <mvngu> Can you explain why it should be in /tmp ? <somos> Becuase SAGE_ROOT requires root permissions. ... <somos> So, my suggestion is to avoid the temp file. #1 <somos> If a temp file is needed, I suggest TMP or TMPDIR instead.
