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...
