Sage on Virtual PC
This web page is about using Sage via Virtual PC instead of VMware.
GPLv3 License Issues
For those with an allergy to (L)GPLv3, the following is how to make a Sage that works and doesn't have any (L)GPLv3 code or binaries.
- Use Ubuntu 5.10, from 2005. Go to /usr/share/common-licenses; no GPL-3 in Ubuntu 5.10, but it is in Ubuntu 7.10. In Ubuntu 7.10 the only GPLv3 thing is binutils.
cd /usr/share/doc grep -i gpl-3 */copyright
On 7.10 this reveals only binutils, but nothing on 5.10.make
The microsoft Virtual PC version of Sage should include GDB, since it is handy to have for debuging cython code.
Install termcap: http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/termcap/termcap-1.3.1.tar.gz Install gdb: http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gdb/gdb-6.6.tar.bz2
Both of the above are GPLv2.
Just install it. Note that "Shared network" is impossible... etc.
