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


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"
