Does anyone have a clue to why Suse 8.0 (clean install on a i386) has this compile problem with octave 2.1.35 and 2.1.36. Thanks

Sounds an awful lot like the problem I had about a year ago trying to compile Octave 2.1.34 on SuSE 7.0. I remember 'zdrot_' coming up.

IIRC this was related to the BLAS package that is installed by SuSE. Apparently the symbol 'zdrot_' isn't included in that package. You can read about that in the mailing-list archives in bug-octave, under the subject "Cannot build Octave", sometime in August 2001.

This was fixed by running ./configure --without-fastblas. Unfortunately a new problem came up after fixing the first one. I finally made everything work by switching to RedHat...

Hope that helps,
