:I am trying to upgrade ovtave to version 1.1.1. But this new version
:needs gcc-2.6 for compilation. Since I only have gcc-2.5.8, I have to
:upgrade gcc as well.
:Can anyone give me a suggestion how to upgrade gcc?
The std. way is to grab the src from prep.ai.mit.edu:/pub/gnu
Read the INSTALL file and follow the instructions.
You will also need to get libg++ from the same source.
:Or is it possible I can find the binary code for octave?
:I am using linux 1.1.57 in IBM-PC Compatible.
Yes, at ftp.che.utexas.edu:/pub/octave/BINARIES you'll find binary
dist. of octave for most machines, including linux. Try this first
as it will be much easier. Also, this is not a std. linux, cd /,
then tar -xf installation. You must simply unpack the archive and
type 'make install' Again, read any INSTALL or READMEs first.
I'm running octave 1.1.1 on my Linux 486/66 right now so if you
have any problems let me know. The main thing I'm worried about
is that you MAY have to also upgrade you runtime c-libs, but
let me know how it goes.
