| I 've just downloaded Octave 2.09 (source version) for my Linux -
| Pentium 200 - RedHat 4.2.
| I made all the installation process as root.
| The problem now is that I can't launch octave if I am not root:
Does it work if you are root? If so, I've got no clues for that
problem, since as far as I know, the installation procedure should be
independent of who ran make install (I believe all the permissions are
set explicitlly by the install commands -- please correct me if that's
not the case).

| What should I do ?
You can try the following patch for aclocal.m4. After applying it,
you'll need to run autoconf, autoheader, configure, and make again.
Your line numbers will surely be different.
If you don't feel like doing all that work, then I'd suggest you get a
statically linked binary from ftp.che.wisc.edu in the directory
