I have a Mandrake 10.1, and I'm trying to install octave.

When I did de .configure, I got:
configure: WARNING: in order to build octave, you must have a compatible
configure: WARNING: Fortran compiler or f2c installed and in your path.
configure: error: See the file INSTALL for more information.

And I really haven't the Fortran or f2c. So, I got the libf2c0-3.4.3-7mdk.i586.rpm and try to install it. But I got:
 %post(libf2c0-3.4.3-7mdk) scriptlet failed, exit status 0

Now I tryied to install again (to get the error again) and seems that the package is already installed (rpm says so).

Does anyone have a clue of how to install octave on Mandrake 10.1?



I'd tell you to point your urpmi at our update machine here as we are entirely mandrake based. However, as we are behind the Motorola firewall that won't help you much. There are also a large number of dependencies and local tweaks (eg latest development version of atlas, etc), so sending you the rpms is probably not practical either

A quick search on for Mandrake rpm's showed that octave-2.1.64 is in the contrib directory of mandrake 10.2.. Also, for mandrake 10.1 there is octave-2.1.59 available. So just doing "urpmi octave; urpmi octave-forge" should give you a fairly recent install...
