Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Okay, so I'm doing some research for which I need the most up-to-date octave I can get. So, instead of taking the 2.9.x Ubuntu or Debian package, I grabbed the 3.0.0 tarball from the octave site. Then all the trouble began. :-)
Okay, so I am using atlas for the LAPACK and BLAS, and I grabbed a tarball of SuiteSparse for everything else. I managed to compile SuiteSparse with metis and atlas, and that tree now resides in /opt/SuiteSparse-3.1.0/ . The trouble is, I can find no way to make the octave configure script aware of their location.
I can't do --with-UMFPACK, etc because apparently that is just expecting =yes or =no. I tried adding '-I/opt/SuiteSparse/UMFPACK/Include/ /opt/SuiteSparse-3.1.0/Lib/libumfpack.a' to CFLAGS, but all to no avail.
I think the problem is that -lumfpack isn't being created since SuiteSparse has no 'make install' or any other way of installing outside of its own source tree. How can I solve or circumvent this? Has anyone managed to build octave 3.0.0 yet?
to make it aware is to look where it tries to look in your pkgconfig file. and if it is looking in the /usr/loacal/lib/pkgconfig folder and it is not there then that could be your trouble. or if it is looking for your /usr/lib/pkgconfig folder instead of looking in the other.check you config log and check your configure program to see where it is looking.
Sorry, but I don't think I could be much help there. I just directly followed the directions from SuiteSparse. If those didn't work for you, then I don't know what will. I wound up just finding enough things in the Debian repos to get Octave to build, so I didn't even end up using my newly-build suitesparse.
