Program compiling errors


I have a tarball with a program that keeps giving me errors whenever i issue the make command, I was thinking that it was a gcc compiling error. I have done what the readme file in the tarball said, I set all of the necessary bash variables and it still isn't working.I someone elses opinions on what the problem may be.

here is a link to the error verbose when I compiled it

Sage-3.0 : The first hit with Google .. sage-3.0 ..
http://sagemath.blogspot.dk/2008/04/...nd-beyond.html
says : "full GCC-4.3 support". It's an old version, 2008.
I.e. use gcc-4.1 ... gcc-4.3 . EDIT: It's about a different "sage3.0" :
http://www.sagecommons.org/index.php...d=92&Itemid=80 (See post #4)

Or may be you can use e.g. sage-5.2 ?
http://www.sagemath.org/src-old/sage-5.2.tar
All versions : http://www.sagemath.org/src-old/

Ref. your "sage errors.pdf" :
1) sdl-config : not found
2) Missing GL/glut.h
3) Missing GL/gl.h and GL/glu.h
.. Use 'apt-file search <file>' or the online search to decide package names ..
http://packages.debian.org/search?su...rds=sdl-config
http://packages.debian.org/search?su...rds=GL%2Fglu.h

And then install the missing development packages :
# apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev freeglut3-dev mesa-common-dev libglu1-mesa-dev

.

Sagmath is not what I am installing, I am installing the Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment program from the Electronic Visualization Laboratories in Chicago Illinois. more information about the project can be found here
http://sagecommons.org
I have been debugging it with netbeans (Can't believe I didn't think about it before) it turned out that there were some header files in the tarball that the compiler wasn't seeing so it started giving me errors that prevented it from building, also the mesa development packages weren't installed and they have the GL files that it was asking for. Now it comiles perfectly I get no errors and I am able to execute make install but I am now getting the message
Code:
pythonw not found
I have seen this message before but to this day don't know exactly what it means nor do I have a way to fix it. I want to fix this error for good after getting it so many times over the years.

""As of Python 2.5, python and pythonw are interchangeable ..""

So I guess you can do : cd /usr/bin/ ; # ln -s python2.6 pythonw
