I can not compile octave on Slackware 14
 
This is the error message I got. Can you help?
I used slackbuild script. Anyway, This is the same error I get when I am compiling from source.
Thanks in advance.

I don't want to sound like a smartaleck, but, since you didn't mention, did you install the dependencies listed on the SlackBuild page, lapack and blas.

rasitabay 04-07-2013 12:31 AM

Hi Frankbell,
Thanks for your reply.
I have installed every dependencies. I can not understand why I always get this error. Are there anyone who compiled octave from source on slackware 14.
Or at least can you try to compile on your system for me?

renandeos 07-04-2013 02:07 PM

Solved?
 
Hi fellow. Have you ever solved your problem? If yes, can you give the correct answer, solution for us?
Thanks.

Thanks.

Unfortunately my friend. I gave upon Octave and I use Sage for immediate calculations and C++ for its speed.
Sorry.

renandeos 07-05-2013 07:29 PM

Hmmm. I found one good solution (for me). Before the "big compilation", try log as 'su -l', instead of 'su'. It works.
Try and post to us the result, please.

Hi Frankbell,
Thanks for your reply.
I have installed every dependencies. I can not understand why I always get this error. Are there anyone who compiled octave from source on slackware 14.
Or at least can you try to compile on your system for me?
I must apologize. I missed your request. I will take a look at octave next week.

I will definitely appreciate it.
Thanks.

I tried to install octave today on Slackware --Current and ran into a problem. Although I understand that Slackware comes with a TeX function installed (I say "understand" because it's not something I have ever used) the compile choked with a message that I did not have a TeX binary in the path.

At that point I ran out of time, but, in case it helps shed some light, I'm posting the error message at the end of the compile:

Code:

MAKEINFO='/bin/sh /tmp/SBo/octave-3.6.4/build-aux/missing --run makeinfo  -I .' \
texi2dvi octave.texi
You don't have a working TeX binary (tex) installed anywhere in
your PATH, and texi2dvi cannot proceed without one.  If you want to use
this script, you'll need to install TeX (if you don't have it) or change
your PATH or TEX environment variable (if you do).  See the --help
output for more details.

For information about obtaining TeX, please see http://www.tug.org.  If
you happen to be using Debian, you can get it with this command:
  apt-get install tetex-bin
make[3]: *** [octave.dvi] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/tmp/SBo/octave-3.6.4/doc/interpreter'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/tmp/SBo/octave-3.6.4/doc'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/SBo/octave-3.6.4'
make: *** [all] Error 2

If I get a chance tomorrow, I'll look at this some more, but this is rapidly moving into an area that is, as someone once said, "above my pay grade." Maybe someone else who knows more than I do will come to this thread and help us out.

My problem is with graphics.h header file. When I checked before compiling process, there was no graphics.h file in source code folder. However, later it was created with capital letters 'İ' instead of 'I' within the file (graphics.h). For example, BEİNGNEGLECTED instead of BEINGNECLECTED. Therefore, I had the error that I added at the beginning of the post.

Might be better if you hit the Report button, and ask for this thread to be moved to the Slackware forum. A lot of Slackers never stray out of there. :)

Try as root, but with 'su -l'

Try compile it again, but when logging as root, put 'su -l'. Report here the result, please.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in the slackware forum and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.
*Also not the "Similar Threads" box at the bottom of this page: it may not be the first time this question was asked.

Code:

su -l
worked. Octave compiled and installed.

Hope this helps OP.
