You want ufsparse (now called suitesparse).. The version 1.2 is rather
old and will have lots of missing features for use with octave. I
believe 2.1.1 is the version you want.. Using pbone (a great rpm search
engine), I can easily find

for the Fedora 6 binary of this, though you should take the source RPM
and rebuild for slackware... I'd suggest a set of instructions like

rpm -Uvh ufsparse-2.1.1-1.fc6.src.rpm
cd /usr/src/RPM/SPECS
rpm -ba ufsparse.spec
cd ../RPMS/i586
rpm -Uvh ufsparse*

as a reasonable fashion to install suitesparse on an rpm enabled OS that
doesn't already have a ufsparse/suitesparse package available.. The
above has to be done as root of course...
