How are the Repositories Maintained?
How are the Repositories Maintained? I installed Octave from the repository. It didn't run so I checked what command was on the menu and than ran it from the shell. I found it was missing liblapack.so.3gf. The package manager missed this dependency and when I did a search for lpack in the package manager nothing came up. Is there somewhere where I should report missing dependencies?
so I moved the shared library into the /lib path and I still got the same error. I noticed that in the following tutorial:
there is an environmental variable called $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
I typed this in the terminal and /lib was in the library path, so why can't Octave see this shared object?
