I'm having trouble installing the latest version of Octave on a new MacBook Pro, because I get the following error in configuration:

configure: error: A BLAS library was detected but found incompatible with your Fortran 77 compiler settings.

I've read that Octave 3.2.3 would work -- anyone know where I can download this?


PS - Alternatively, if there's something I can do to use the most recent version of Octave, that'd work too. :)

There are two easy ways:
1. Download a pre-built binary of either 3.4 (the latest) or 3.23 from:
2. Use Mac Ports to build either 3.24 or 3.4 (listed as octave-devel)

The Mac Ports builds have the advantage that thy are 64 bits, but the 3.4 build lacks the optional fltk graphics engine.
