I would like to use a more recent version of octave than 4.4.1 -
preferably as recent as possible :)
I tried to do a backport using this descritption:
But that failed due to to dependency problems with debhelper-compat
Is a backport from bullseye scheduled?
I have uploaded version 5.2.0 of the octave package backported to
buster. It is now in the NEW queue:
Since the packages are sitting on the NEW queue and waiting for the
approval of the ftp-masters, I have set up an APT repository for them.
Here is the cookbook for installing the packages on a buster system :
echo "deb http://rafael.laboissiere.net/octave-buster-backports/ /" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/octave-buster-backports.list
wget -q -O - http://rafael.laboissiere.net/octave-buster-backports/KEY.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt update
sudo apt install octave
I hope this will work for you. If not, please drop me a note.
