octave dumps core

I want to get octave running on my new sgi 230, but it dumps core whenever
I attempt to run it.

Here is a bit of history:
address@hidden rpms]# rpm -i octave- 
address@hidden rpms]#
No problems here...

address@hidden Šþ]$ octave
Octave, version (i386-redhat-linux-gnu).

error: Segmentation fault -- stopping myself...
error: attempted clean up apparently failed -- aborting...
Abort (core dumped)
address@hidden Šþ]$ 
But it sure doesn't like my machine here!

Any suggestions about diagnosing the problem?

Here is some information about my machine:

PS.  Sorry if this case has been discussed already.  I searched the acrhive for the past two 
years for the word "core" with no luck.
