== How do I install ''all'' octave packages? ==
Do not do it! Really, there is no reason to do this. Octave Forge has many packages for different needs but it's unlikely that you need all of them. The common misconception is that the more packages one installs, the more complete and powerful its octave
inslattion will be be. However, in the same way one would ''never'' install all perl modules, ruby gems or python packages (because it simply makes no sense), one should not install all octave packages. This isn't desirable and it's not even possible. Some packages conflict with each other, some are broken, others are just crappy and will break your system. What's worse, some packages are even loaded automatically at startup so you may be screwing your octave installation without even realizing it.
