It's helpful to read the documentation for diff and for dsolve.

diff(S,S) is not a differential, it is dS/dS=1. You can see this in your code; no term such as dS appears.

If you know the answer, why are you asking Octave to solve it? These integrals can be done analytically by realizing that d/dx ( ln( f(x) ) ) = df/dx / f(x) . I would recommend posting mathematical questions on, or consulting the thermodynamics textbook where you found this equation.
