Have these been moved? I'm still trying to get Octave working but was unable to find either one.

Thanks in advance,

Colonel Panic .

Found these by googling on "BLAS", lapack" and "tlz".

Best,

Colonel Panic.

Apparently I'm missing two files called lapack.so.3 and libg2c.so.0. Has anyone got any idea as to where I can get these and where they should be installed?

Thanks in advance,

Colonel Panic.

Colonel Panic,

Those packages have already moved to the extra repository some time ago. The links have been corrected, so those should solve your problems.

Thanks for replying, but I still have one file missing; libg2c.so.0.

Best,

You're right, that was the "missing link" ;) I downloaded and installed that gcc package and Octave works now.

Thanks for your help.
