Segmentation faults and plot failures

Craig Earls
I have been trying to get Octave working for about a week now, I had a
working binary of 1.1.1 but it wouldn't plot, the tmp file sent to
gnuplot had format problems (looked like a printf format problem) so I
upgraded fromlibc5.2.18 to 5.4.13, then it segmentation faulted. I tried
building from source, but had the same problem, even with no comilation
complaints.

Then I download 1.93, no compilation errors, but it segment faulted
right at the start.

I am using
kernel 2.0.25
libc5.4.13
gcc 2.7.2.1
ld.so.1.8.5
libg++2.7.1.4
g77 0.5.18


Any ideas? i can't even tell you which portionof the code give the
fault.

Craig

I had almost   the  same  problems  with an   ELF  1.1.1  binary   for
Linux. Then I couldn't compile 1.9x neither 1.1.1. Then I downloaded a
statically  compiled binary and had   no  problems.  Try a  statically
compiled 1.1.1  from  http://www.che.wisc.edu,   it's very  robust.  I
installed it with no problems in several systems.

I heartily endorse Mario's comment. I have had exactly the same
precompiled octave-1.1.1 binary working pedrfectly well on Linux systems
with 1.0.8, 1.0.9, 1.2.8, 1.2.13 and 2.0 kernels (binary simply copied
from system to system).

That did the trick! It even plots correctly. What makes me mad is that I
thought of downloading that binary, but the filelength was exactly the
same as the binary on a CD-ROM I have, one that wasn't statically
linked, and didn't work.

Many thanks,
Craig
