It looks (below) like two problems: 1. You don't have permission to write (create/change files) in the directory tree SAGE_ROOT. 2. This: "Error: package 'polytopes_db_4d' not found" I'm not sure how to overcome the first. If sage is installed on a multiuser system, in an admin/root-owned tree, you are stuck, I think. Check with the system admins. As for the second, you don't seem to have enough information below to figure out why the package is not found. Are you sure the name is complete and correct? The link you include (above) only seems to give use examples, not install instructions. HTH Justin > which suggests the shell command > > sage -i polytopes_db_4d > . > > This didn't work.
