With Debian, I am given the choice to use either octave 2.0.17 or 2.1.55.

Well, I started with the latest and installed the octave-forge package in its
version '2004.02.12-2' which I guess means version 2.1.54 or so because it
installed the libs in /usr/share/octave/2.1.54/site/m/octave-forge

Then I set my path with:


and I get the following:

warning: in mark_as_command near line 1, column 1:
warning: mark_as_command: invalid use inside function body
error: `dispatch' undefined near line 2 column 1
error: near line 2 of file 
error: source: error sourcing file 
error: evaluating assignment expression near line 46, column 14
error: evaluating if command near line 41, column 3
error: called from `path' in file 

I have then removed octave2.1 and octave-forge (from 'Debian unstable') to
install those from 'Debian testing' which are:
octave2.1      2.1.53-4
octave-forge   2003.06.02-8 (I guess 2.1.50 when referring to install path)

and then again I am getting into the same problems.

Any hint ?
