How to install the sage-combinat patches
Short installation instructions
Step 1. To use the features developed by Sage-combinat, you first need to install Sage. You have two options.
- Binary installation (takes less time; only option on Windows; only works if a binary exists for your system):
Download a binary distribution for your system from http://www.sagemath.org/download and follow the installation instructions
- Source installation (recommended, but time-consuming; works for Linux and OSX as long as you have a C compiler):
Download the source code from http://sagemath.org/download-source.html and follow the installation instructions on that page.
Step 2. Step 1 already installs the Sage-combinat package. If you really need the latest features of Sage-Combinat, you need to install the Sage-Combinat patches on top by running the following command inside the sage directory:
./sage -combinat install
It is recommended to use the latest version of Sage. As of July 11th of 2014, Sage >= 6.2 is required.
If this step fails, please send an email to the sage-combinat-devel mailing list with the error message.
