Hello, folks!

I am not quite sure if this is the right place to ask, so forgive me
in case it is not.

I am running Fedora Core 4 on a Pentium 4 2.4GHz with 2 Gb RAM. Today
(2005-08-04) I upgraded Octave and Octave-devel via "yum update". The
packages now installed are octave-2.1.71-14.fc4.i386.rpm and
octave-devel-2.1.71-14.fc4.i386.rpm from the "extras" repository. The
octave-forge was not upgraded, being version 2005-06-13, release

After I upgraded, I keep getting panic segmentation folks when running

I'm the package maintainer, and yes, I got the problem too. The problem appears to be with octave-forge--removing it makes octave run properly. If you need a short-term fix, try that. The new version of octave was the first build of octave that includes support for HDF5, which is now in Extras. It appears that the problem is that I should have rebuilt octave-forge as well, but I didn't. It is building right now, and I'll send a link to the new package to this list as soon as it's complete.
