Octave 3.6.4-rc2 release candidate available for ftp

John W. Eaton
Administrator
The third release candidate of Octave 3.6.4 is now available from
alpha.gnu.org in the directory /gnu/octave:

  6a1eae4dd9e94925c2f6fe5e2390d0df  octave-3.6.4-rc2.tar.gz

  -rw-r--r-- 1 3003 3002 18366546 Feb 11 22:13 octave-3.6.4-rc2.tar.gz

Please help make the 3.6.4 release a success by building from this
release candidate and reporting any problems.  We could especially use
reports for Windows and OS X systems.

I have not seen this (XOpenIM() failed) message before.
The plot looks OK though...
Subsequent plots (withing the same octave session)
do not produce this message.

Fedora 18 / x86_64 / NVidia graphics card w/ nvidia driver.

Otherwise looks OK so far.

I have seen this too.  And, a look on the web shows that other
applications are seeing this problem.  There seems to be more
than one cause.  I noticed that as root the problem goes away.
And, if you set the environment variable LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose
you can see a bit more detail.  The problem seems to be with
OpenGL and xorg and nouveau.  It appears that there is nothing
to be done within Octave (short of not using OpenGL) that can
fix the problem.

On Mac OSX 10.7.5,
it builds fine until it reaches:

make[2]: *** No rule to make target `.DOCSTRINGS', needed by `all-local'.  Stop.

I am using the same version of Fedora and see this message on ALL
versions of Octave when using fltk.  I am quite sure that this is not
an Octave problem, particularly since it can be made to go away if
you run as root.

How did you run configure?  With a normal build, you should not need to
build the documentation from a tarball release.

But no rule to make the .DOCSTRINGS target is odd in any case.  I'll see
if I can understand how that can happen.  Knowing the arguments you gave
to configure will help in any case.

No problems on RHEL 5, RHEL 6, Ubuntu 10.04, Debian testing / unstable.

Also built with mxe-octave and ran fntests in a wine console, no major
failures, only some out-of-tolerance errors and some due to OS- or
wine-specific behavior, I can follow up later on an mxe thread.

Sorry I forgot to include that.

Using macports on MacOS 10.7.8, rc2 builds fine.  Except for one test that always fails for me (trivial error below), all tests pass.

  ***** testif HAVE_ARPACK
 [v1,d1] = eigs(A, k, 'si');
 d1 = diag(d1);
 for i=1:k
  assert(max(abs((A - d1(i)*eye(n))*v1(:,i))),0.,1e-11)
 endfor
!!!!! test failed
assert (max (abs ((A - d1 (i) * eye (n)) * v1 (:, i))),0.,1e-11) expected
0
but got
 3.0465e-11
maximum absolute error 3.04655e-11 exceeds tolerance 1e-11

Looks good on Fedora rawhide, except for:

   scripts/sparse/svds.m .................................. PASS    5/6    FAIL 1

Summary:
   PASS  10211
   FAIL      1
There were 2 expected failures (see fntests.log for details).

Which if I remember correctly is a known issue?

On Linux (Mageia-2): builds fine, no FAILS in 'make check'.

MXE build (tested on WinXP):
- Takes 17 secs to produce a prompt (such a startup delay is a common issue with MinGW-like builds)
- Unfortunately again shows bug #34631
- I can't do a 'make check' but share/..../test/runtests produces the same errors/issues as in my post about "testing MXE-Octave" (https://mailman.cae.wisc.edu/pipermail/octave-maintainers/2013-February/032087.html, about halfway after 'other tests')
- After installing O-F java & windows packages, the spreadsheet I/O test scripts run OK for all .xls and .ods interfaces.
Overall I have the impression that this MXE build is relatively fast, except for building OF packages which seems relatively slow.
(BTW I had to add makeinfo.exe from another MinGW Octave version into ./bin to avoid loads of messages about missing makeinfo and 'unusable help text' when invoking ./src/build_packages.m)

Just for completeness I'll try to have a "native" MinGW build produced overnight using gcc-4.5.2 (but I have little reason to expect that such a build will perform better than this MXE one).

On Fedora 18 x86_64:

No problem with build:
Summary:

   PASS  10212
   FAIL      0

and gnuplot seems OK.  But, "fltk"  has serious problems:
octave:1> plot(1:400)
XOpenIM() failed
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib64/dri/i965_dri.so
libGL: Can't open configuration file /home/godfrey/.drirc: No such file
or directory.
libGL: Can't open configuration file /home/godfrey/.drirc: No such file
or directory.

and the plot is incomplete.  This appears to be due to a problem in OpenGL.
For me the problem has been made worse due to switching to a newer system
which uses Intel graphics.  My older systems used Nvidia.

While "fltk" has known problems, the XOpemIM() failed problem is due to
FC18.

I cannot reproduce this problem on i7-2600k ("Sandy Bridge" w/ integrated intel 3000 graphics) --
perhaps you have a newer chip ("Ivy Bridge") with Intel 4000 graphics.
 
I do have the "usual" fltk problem (broken/missing lines, see attached; the "print" of
this plot looks fine though).

Same problem here with fltk and Debian 7.0. Broken/missing  lines
already present in current released version.
I have an Ivy Bridge if that is of any help.

I have an Ivy Bridge if that is of any help.
I have spent a little time on this and it appears that this is a fairly major
screw-up in Fedora 18.  It appears to involve  OpenGL, the graphics drivers
(not just nouveau, nvidia, and Intel) and selinux (due to wrong attribute settings)
and surely more than a few other things.  It will likely be some time before this gets
straightened out.  It is hard to see how we (Octave) can deal with this.

It may be best to flag this as a current problem with FC18 and other recent
Linux releases.  Sadly, the obvious work-around is to go back to gnuplot.
(However, I recently noticed that gnuplot is also affected.  The plots in the
Manual are not all quite right if built on Fedora 18.)

I found the problem I was (am) having with plots that appear incomplete
using fltk in FC18.  It is the axes that appear not to have been drawn.  
Since there
was an error message from XOpenIM() I tended to blame the FC18 XOpen
code.  However, I have now discovered that the problem is with the
"linewidth", 0.5,
which is the default linewidth.  If I change the linewidth to 1, the
axes appear
and plots are normal.   Something in the changes between FC17 and FC18
caused X11 to behave differently.

Is there a way to globally change "linewidth" ?

Anyhow, my complaint about incomplete plots is now in principle resolved.

You can change the default properties at the root level.  To change the default linewidth for each axes object ...

        set (0, "defaultaxeslinewidth", 1)
