Has anyone been able to successfully install Octave 3.2.2 (or any
earlier version) on the new Mac OSX 10.6 (Snow Leopard) operating
system? I've heard nothing but horror stories so far. I would very
much like to upgrade to Mac OSX 10.6 (which I have purchased), but I
dare not upgrade unless I can install Octave. Mind you, I am an old
(74), unix-un-savvy mathematician; I need a relatively straightforward
installation process.

By the way, Octave 3.2.2 works perfectly now, on my 2.93 GHz Intel
Core 2 Duo iMac with Mac OSX 10.5.8. As I understand it, Octave 3.2.2
will stop working as soon as I upgrade to Mac OSX 10.6. Am I wrong
about this?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.



I'm presently unable to build octave, but have no problem running the binary at the link below.

However, if you need to compile oct-files, you'll want to wait until the problem with 'mkoctfile' is fixed.
