Hi Terry,

Thank you for reply.
Unfortunately, building RPM file is too complicated way for me.
For example, I do not know how to create SPEC file and, to my knowledge, it
is not an easy execise.
Following you suggestion, I found this link:
Installation of epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm opened me a way to some packages
in Fedora repo.
It is even possible to install Octave-3.05 on my RH5 system (did not try
I also installed some missed packages, and now the config script looks like
mkdir -p $HOME/soft/octave-3.4.2
./configure                     \
  --enable-docs=no              \
  --enable-64=no                \
  --disable-largefile           \
  --enable-openmp=no            \
  --enable-static=no            \
  --without-curl                \
  --without-opengl              \
  --without-framework-opengl    \
so most of the packages are available for building.
Unfortunately, octave executable is still crashing.
This is what gdb shows:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00002aaaabaeb108 in sigemptyset () from

At this stage I would rather postpone any futher attempts.
