I've been working on Octave 5.1 builds for Rawhide and EPEL-7 here:


Build status notes:

I'm pretty close to updating octave in rawhide proper, but want to see
if a couple issues are fixed first.

Testing is appreciated.  I'll also be building an octave 5.1 module as
well once I've updated octave in rawhide.

Hi Orion,
	even although I have the copr repository active I am not able to
install it:

# dnf install octave
Copr repo for octave5.1 owned by @scitech          5.3 kB/s | 3.9 kB     00:00
  Problem: conflicting requests
   - nothing provides libreadline.so.7()(64bit) needed by
   - nothing provides libqscintilla2_qt5.so.13()(64bit) needed by
(try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages)

I suspect this is an issue with having the octave:4.4 module enabled as well. They probably won't play well together.

BTW I think that for Fedora 30+ we have to set octave to use python 3. This is
required in the octave-symbolic package since sympy is only available for
python 3.

In this case I think that we have to create a file in:
(in our case octave-home == /usr)

with the following code:
setenv PYTHON python3;

I am not sure if there are other uses of python that this call interferes
with, but python2 is going to be unsupported at the end of this year. (Even
although it will be used for years and years....)

Best regards,

I think the octave-symbolic package is already configured to use python3, but it probably is time to configure octave with PYTHON=python3.
