Re: Octave packages installation

Hi Alexander & Marius

I have version 3.8.0 on my macbook. I cannot remember from which source I downloaded the binary files, as it was about a year ago.
I had to get some help from one my IT colleagues, as I wasn’t sure how to get this installation to work. So he probably had to do some of that patching that you mentioned. Before that I also needed to get Xcode installed on my macbook. Now I have Xcode version 6.1.
Currently the Octave application works fine on my machine running on Mac OS Yosemite 10.10.1.

I require the Symbolic and the Signal packages to be added please.

When I run this command to instal Symbolic from the Octave prompt: pkg install -forge symbolic
Then I get the following errors:
/usr/local/octave/3.8.0/bin/mkoctfile: line 512:  5797 Segmentation fault: 11  /usr/local/octave/3.8.0/bin/g++-mp-4.7 -c -fPIC -I/usr/local/octave/3.8.0/include/octave-3.8.0/octave/.. -I/usr/local/octave/3.8.0/include/octave-3.8.0/octave -I/usr/local/octave/3.8.0/include -pipe -Os -m64 -D_THREAD_SAFE -pthread -o symbols.o

When I try to instal Signal package with: pkg install -forge signal
Then i get the following dependencies problems:
error: the following dependencies were unsatisfied:
   signal needs control >= 2.4.5
 signal needs general >= 1.3.2

Can you advise me what I need to do please?

Thank you!

What version of octave?

How was octave installed? MacPorts, Homebrew or Fink?

What octave package(s) are you trying to install?

Marius Schamschula

Or did you install Octave by some other means, such as a standalone binary or building it yourself from source?  Some of the Octave Forge packages require patching to build at all on OS X, and just using Octave’s “pkg install” won’t do the job.
