undefined reference in libstdc++


I have been trying compile Octave 2.9 and I am running into problems on the make step. The make process terminates with the following error: /usr/lib/gcc/i586-suse-linux/4.1.2/libstdc++.so: undefined reference to `_Unwind_GetIPInfo@GCC_4.2.0'

I have been searching on this issue for several hours, to no avail. From what I have learned this function is new to g++ version 4.2 and this appears to be a common error.

As my goal is to run Octave, not screw around building it, I would be happy with a binary distribution for it. I spent a couple of hours on that path to no avail also. I located an RPM for it and attempted to use YaST to install it. It accessed the CD, downloaded a bunch of dependencies, etc and then terminated - still no octave apparent. If I try to use the terminal with "rpm -ivh octave..." to install that way, it complains about a bunch of missing dependencies for items such as gnuplot, even though they ARE installed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Go here to search for Octave, just put Octave in the search field and hit "search", on the nesxt page you will find that the package you need to install is "TeXmacs-1.0.6.9-3.1.i586.rpm". Click on it to take you to another page with download links and information regarding dependencies which will be under "requires". Bookmark this page, no rpm distribution user should be without a link to this site which gives allot of information regarding availability and dependencies.

RPM Link

Thank you for the suggestion. I will give that a try tonight and post the results.

After reading your response, it realized that I saw that TeXmacs link before when I was searching in YaST for Octave. Of course in the midst of my frustration it didn't occur to me to install it as it just looked like an irrelevant link.
