Problem installing octave rpm

I have a major problem installing octave on my suse 10 linux (I'm a
nearly a month now.I have an amd 64 bit proccesor and after downloading
the rpms required i installed octave-2.1.71-x86_64.rpm without problem.
After that i typed octave to the terminal and got this message : " error while
loading shared libraries : cannot open shared object file : No
such file or directory "
After that with the promt of a friend I installed
gnat-gcc-4.1.0-SuSE_10_0_r4.x86_64.rpm so as to get bit).
What i don't know is :
1. Do I have the right distribution of octave ?
2. What does this error message means ?
3. Could you please send me a list of rpm 's needed to install octave?
I 'm looking forward to your reply

P.S Octave is not on the distribution DVD
Thank you

I can't answer your specific questions - but is Octave not available for download and installation through the Package Manager Yast?

I have found "Hacking SUSE 10 OSS" useful. Available at

I will try it but i 'm quite dissapointed with installing it.
I think that maybe it isn't supported by suse 10.
