Dear all,

I'm trying to call from common lisp functions written for Sage

(

www.sagemath.org), which in turn is written in python. To do so, I tried

http://common-lisp.net/project/python-on-lisp/. It was quite easy to get it to

run and do some simple things with python.

However, I was unable to get sage to run within it.

If I start my local python 2.5 and follow (roughly)

http://www.sagemath.org/doc/tut/node55.html
it works nicely:

martin@rubey-laptop:~/Documents/sage-3.1.4/local/bin$ . ./sage-env

martin@rubey-laptop:~/Documents/sage-3.1.4/local/bin$ /usr/bin/python

Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Jul 31 2008, 17:28:52)

[GCC 4.2.3 (Ubuntu 4.2.3-2ubuntu7)] on linux2

Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

>>import sys

from sage.all import *

var('z')

z

>>integrate(1/z, z)

log(z)

>>>

But not so from within python-on-lisp. Below the complete log. But actually,

the first warning occurs already when importing sys (I have little python

experience and no idea what sys contains)

sys:1: RuntimeWarning: Python C API version mismatch for module pol: This Python has API version 1013, module pol has version 1011.

As far as I understand python on lisp, it provides an interface to the python

library:

(cffi:define-foreign-library python-library

(:darwin (:framework "Python"))

(:unix (:or "libpython2.5.so.1.0" "libpython2.4.so.1.0"

"libpython2.3.so.1.0"))

(:windows (:or "python25.dll" "python24.dll" "python23.dll") )

(t (:default "libpython")))

Sage comes with it's own python, however, without a library. On the otherhand,

above I demonstrated that sage also works with the python interpreter that

comes with kubuntu. (maybe it needs the interpreter, and the library is not

sufficient?)

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Martin
