Fedora: update commands; remove outdated package
=Debian and Debian-based (such as Ubuntu)=
Either use {{Codeline|aptitude}} or {{Codeline|apt-get}}:''Main article: [[Octave for Debian systems]]''
# aptitude Simply install octave<version> octave<version>-docOctave from your distribution repository:
where {{Codeline|<version>}} must be substituted by the appropriate string. apt-get install octave
The For old versions of Ubuntu that only supply old versions of Octave-Forge packages are spread over many , consider using Octave's PPA. For more details, see the [[Debian packages]] specific instructions page. All Octave-Forge packages will probably be found with the command:
$ aptitude search ?description\(There are also Debian packages for each of the Octave-Forge packages, usually named {{codeline|octave<pkgname>}}, e.g, {{codeline|octave-image}} and {{codeline|octave-forge\)statistics}} for the image processing and statistics package respectively. A complete list of them can be found with the command:
For more details, see the [[Debian]] specific instructions page. aptitude search ?description\(octave-forge\)
 : ''Main article: [[Octave for Red Hat Linux systems]]'' The packages can be installed using the yum dnf command, they are:
{{Codeline|octave-forge}} is recommended to all users, as it provides many extra functions. {{Codeline|octave-devel}} contains the octave headers and {{Path|mkoctfile}} script and is really only needed by users who are developing code that is to be dynamically linked to octave. {{Codeline|octave}} and {{Codeline|octave-forge}} can be installed with the command:
# yum dnf install octave-forge
By default, yum will most likely install blas and lapack as your matrix math libraries, but ATLAS is usually much faster. If you want to install atlas with octave, use the command=Gentoo=
# yum install octave-forge atlasOctave is available through Gentoo's package management system, Portage:

=: ''Main article: [[Octave for Red Hat Enterprise=Linux systems]]''
Octave is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux distributions through the [ EPEL] repository. This section applies to CentOS, Scientific Linux, and other Red Hat Enterprise rebuild distributions as well.
'''Method 1 - the quick way:'''
yum install epel-release
yum install octave
'''Method 2 - if the above does not work:'''
First, follow [ these instructions] to set up your system to install packages from EPEL. For example,
Once the EPEL repository has been enabled, you can follow the rest of the [[#Fedora|instructions for Fedora]] to install Octave using yum.
Note that EPEL intentionally does not follow new releases as closely as other distributions. Consequently, the version of Octave provided by EPEL may be several months or years out of date. There are plans for the Octave maintainers to provide support and binary RPMs for enterprise GNU/Linux distributions, ; contact the [ maintainers mailing list] for more information.
=Red HatSUSE Linux and openSUSE=
GNU : ''Main article: [[Octave is included with Red Hat. If you are still using an old version of Red Hat and want a newer version of GNU Octave, your best options are to consider updating your distribution to a recent Fedora release or compile octave from source.for openSUSE]]''
Note that RH 7.x distributions (as well as Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1) have included an old version Binary packages for Octave are provided by all versions of GCC (pre 3.x)openSUSE. It is known that GCC 2.96 (included in RH7.3) can compile GNU Octave (as of version 2.1.57), but the resulting binary will be bad. Red Hat made available RPMs for GCC 3.1-5 through httpinstalled by command:// (those RPMs may be available on other RPM repositories).
=SUSE Linux Enterprise and openSUSE=Octave 3.6.2 is included zypper in the science repository with SLE 11 SP2 and openSUSE 11.4, 12.1, 12.2octave
Latest stable version of Octave and Octave-Forge are available on Science repository. For details see [http://download[openSUSE]] specific wiki OBS science]
For example, for openSUSE 12.2 you would do:=Arch Linux=
# zypper ar science # zypper refresh # zypper install octave octave-devel for other versions change the version number in the first command accordingly. 2012-08-21''Main article: arpack-ng and SuiteSparse 4.0 bindings which were broken before are again functional, if you have a previous version of the rpm's installed consider to update them.  [[Category:GNULinuxOctave for Arch Linux]] =Arch Linux=''
Updated Octave's version is in the extra repository. It can be installed by typing:
# pacman -S octave
