Welcome to the Sage Installation Guide

You can install Sage either from a pre-built binary tarball or from its sources.

Installing Sage from pre-built binaries is the fastest method, with fewest prerequisites. Choose it for your first Sage install.

By compiling Sage from its sources you run a slightly more up-to-date version. You can also modify it and contribute back to the project. Compiling Sage should be simpler than you’re used to with most software, since much testing is done on a wide range of computers.
