### SageMath installation problems

Hi,

I'm trying to get polymake to work inside SageMath, but am somewhat confused by the variety of information on how to do this (it looks like some might be out of date). Was unsure whether to ask at a SageMath forum, but I thought I'd start here.

I've got SageMath 9.2 installed via conda on a couple of macs, one running Big Sur on apple silicon, the other running Mojave, but the problem is the same.

From what I've read I should install polymake on SageMath via

Code: Select all

sage -i polymake
but that gives an error "make: *** No rule to make target 'all-toolchain'. Stop."

Is that the preferred method of getting polymake in SageMath? If so, can anyone help with the problem? If not, what is the preferred way?

Thanks,

Simon.

Dear Simon,

I can only tell you as much as that this error message is not from the polymake build-system. Since the polymake team is not involved in the SageMath interface we cannot help you any further, so please try asking in the SageMath forum or have a look at these question with a similar error message. (That link is currently broken but will hopefully be back online soon --- Edit: it is working again)

Best
Benjamin
