| This is probably a FAQ, but here is a record of octave failing on my
| Linux 2.0.30 system:
| octave:1> b = rand ( 1, 2 )
| b =
| 0.41845 0.21296
| octave:2> a = [ 1; 2; 3 ]
| error: Segmentation fault -- stopping myself...
| error: attempted clean up apparently failed -- aborting...
| IOT trap/Abort (core dumped)
| OK, so I have updated nearly every library to a compatible set, i.e:
| libc-5.4.44 libg++-126.96.36.199
| libstdc++.so.27.14 libm.so.5.0.9
| ld.so-1.9.5 binutils-188.8.131.52.23
| g77-0.5.21 gcc-184.108.40.206
| make-3.75 bison-1.25
| flex-2.5.4a readline-2.1
| texinfo-3.12 autoconf-2.10.......
| Well, you get the picture. All of these packages should be compatible.
You don't say what version of Octave you have, or how it was
For what it's worth, I build Octave all the time on a system running
Linux 2.0.33 using both gcc 2.7.2 and sometimes egcs 1.0.x and I don't
see problems like this.
The best way to submit a bug report for Octave is to use the
octave-bug script. It provides a template that helps to ensure that
no important information is left out.
