I'm trying to install Gnu Octave (the Matlab almost-clone). When I search in Software Manager, Octave3.2 comes up along with all the add-on packages, but when I double-click on the Octave3.2 item in the list, SM hangs. What's going on? I tried a few different repositories along with the main package repository, with same result.
Is there another way to get an Octave 3.x package? I don't want to build from source if I can possibly avoid it, to say nothing of getting all the external dependencies.
