Octave 4.0.0 release candidate 1 available for ftp

José Luis García Pallero

I've tried to install the Octave 4.0 rc1 in my Debian Sid box. I've
had two problems in ./configure:

1. configure: WARNING: HDF5 library not found.  Octave will not be
able to save or load HDF5 data files.

I've installed the packages libhdf5-8, libhdf5-8cpp-8 and libhdf5-dev.
This bug was also present in 3.8.2 but I though that was fixed in the
development sources. The bug can be avoided using
LDFLAGS=-L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/hdf5/serial/ CXXFLAGS and LDFLAGS
must be used because --with-hdf5-includedir and --with-hdf5-libdir are
also buggy for some files

2. configure: WARNING: Qt libraries not found -- disabling GUI

I've installed the packages libqt4-dev, libqt4-dev-bin and their
dependencies. QT was detected by ./configure in Octave 3.8.2
