Paul,

What version of gcc, binutils, libg++, libm, and Linux kernel are you

using? Not sure I can be of help but this is very important to

understanding your problem. Also, what command line did you use

to compile octave. The reason I ask is I have a similar problem

that exhibits itself when I compile with the "--enable-lite" switch.

Regards,

Dave Comer
