When I run ./bootstrap and ./configure I get an error like before.
On the other hand the make-ceck.log file says that octave was build successfully.
Can you elaborate on what to do after the commands in the blog?
Please reply-all, and respond at the bottom.
After running the commands on the blog, octave will have been installed. You just need to open a terminal window and type “octave —force-gui”
The problem is that I want to make changes and rebuild.
Ok. After installing Octave via Homebrew, you’ll have most the dependencies install as well. If you intend to use MacPorts or Fink for dependencies, then you may want to decide which you’d prefer to use and uninstall the others.. I’m using Homebrew. The short instructions below assume you are using Homebrew as well.
There are other dependencies needed. You can install them using the commands below.
## Start with Octave to fulfill most dependencies
brew install octave
brew uninstall octave
## Use Sundails27 instead of Sundials
brew unlink sundials
brew install sundials27
## Add qscintilla2
brew install qscintilla2
## Use Homebrew's texinfo
brew install texinfo
## Use Homebrew's bison
brew install bison
You’ll also want to Install MacTex if building docs is desired.
