View Full Version : Is anyone running a 64 bit version of octave?

I installed octave 3.0, but when I tried ot run, it complained it is not configured to run on a 64 bit os.

There is an old thread on this, which suggests that octave 2.9 might work.

But do I have to build the package myself?
How do I do that?

is anybody using 3.0?

I'm running Gnu Octave 3.0.5 on 64-bit 9.10, its logon screen says "Octave was configured for x86_64-pc-linux-gnu". Installed it via Synaptic.

No idea if the Octave program itself is 64-bit (i.e. allowing elements larger than 4GB in size). Since this box only has 2GB of RAM the issue would be moot. I've not used it much, other than to see it appears to work for what I do with it -- mostly scripts to read foreign binary format data and rewrite into a format our software can handle.

I doubt Multimedia Production is the proper forum for this question.
