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!

signal is telling you exactly what to do:  install the control and general packages.

symbolic doesn’t show up in my “pkg list -forge” output for Octave-3.8.1, and I know it hasn’t been updated in a while, so it may well not work with 3.8.x.
