To anyone who got octave:
The issue: whenever I call the function “dmperm”, it gives me the following
error: dmperm: not available in this version of Octave
Typing dmperm(3) gives that. However, dmperm alone gives some instructions on how to use this. So it is seemingly there.
Getting the same thing?
What I got is octave 3.4.0, on openSUSE 11.4 x86-64. I tried with the one in repos contrib, the one in packman, and the one in contrib:Factory. Same outcome.
It could be that there is some missing dependencies that were not specified by the packager, perhaps. This older post Octave - General - dmperm mentioned some packages.
Things I did not have I got installed:
libumfpack5 umfpack-devel bison flex
I could not install “umfpack” as such. It is a source package.
It still does not work.
I don’t know what this dmperm function does and I don’t care about it! It’s just that I need it because I have to use the program dynare, which is powered by octave. Running it will trigger this dmperm problem as well.
So it does not seem to be a dynare issue.
It could be an openSUSE issue with the package.
It could be just about octave (but then how come other distros do not report this?)
Thanks for any help.
