Octave 3.4.3 from EPEL fails with 3 missing RPMs on RHEL6 x86_64



Hi, I am trying to install Octave binaries from EPEL on a RHEL6 x86_64 system. EPEL looked so promising because compiling octave has given me fits with this old compiler (GCC 4.4.5)!! Please tell me whether a problem of missing RPMs is considered an EPEL problem or not. Here's what I found.

First I downloaded the EPEL rpm to hook up to the EPEL repository, installed as follows:

 %  rpm -i epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm

Then yum started to yield very interesting results (full output is below):

 % sudo yum install octave

Yum resolved a slew of dependencies using EPEL (see output below). Unfortunately in the end it failed to find the following RPMS:

Error: Package: 6:octave-3.4.3-1.el6.x86_64 (epel)
           Requires: libglpk.so.0()(64bit)
Error: Package: 6:octave-3.4.3-1.el6.x86_64 (epel)
           Requires: libfftw3f.so.3()(64bit)
Error: Package: 6:octave-3.4.3-1.el6.x86_64 (epel)
           Requires: libfftw3.so.3()(64bit)

The FFTW page http://www.fftw.org/install/linux.html offers some severely outdated RPMs, compiled with gcc 2.95.2, ouch. However they offer source RPMs.

Googling yielded quite a few people asking the same question on various sites. Some posters replied with directions to visit yet another RPM repository ("forge") and others saying never to mix the EPEL with Forge.

I'm new to EPEL, so please pardon if I'm asking the wrong thing or in the wrong place. Thanks for any and all help! If you don't mind, please also respond to me directly so I don't miss anything.

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
