I am trying to install octave forge on a Solaris 10 x64 system (SunOS
imaging 5.10 Generic_118844-08 i86pc i386 i86pc) and I am having some
trouble. I first installed octave-2.1.71 doing the following (see
# change first line of admin/mktests.sh and admin/run_forge
# from #!/bin/sh
# to #!/usr/xpg4/bin/sh
Everything seems to build and check OK (see below). However, after I
do a ``gmake install'' not all of the compiled modules are installed
(particularly the signal and image processing stuff), and what is
installed is actually installed in / not /opt/sfw (see below). I
compared what was installed on this system to what was installed on a
sparc Solaris 8 system, and there seems to quite a discrepancy.
I was wondering if anybody has seen this before or if there was a way I
could manually install the compiled octave-forge files. If it is
possible, where and how would I go about doing this. Thanks.
