For other Unix systems you may have to Build from source.

FreeBSD

If you're running FreeBSD you have two options: you can build from source (via ports) or get the precompiled package:

  • Using ports:

Make sure you have your port tree updated. Check FreeBSD documentation about how to do that. Then, as root, type:

cd /usr/ports/math/octave 
make install clean 

After a while you should have your octave ready to use.

  • Using packages:

As root type:

pkg_add -r octave 

If everything goes fine, it'll fetch the package and install it.

Either way it may also be a good idea to install the package called "octave-forge"

OpenBSD

Octave can be installed on OpenBSD by installing the precompiled package or by building from source.

The Octave package for OpenBSD is currently at version 3.0.5. Install it as root:

 pkg_add octave

Building from source on OpenBSD takes a bit of work at the moment, see Compiling on OpenBSD for more details.
