Description of problem:

Octave function glpk is broken, due to undefined symbol.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run octave
2. write:
3. press enter
Actual results:
octave:1> glpk([1],[1],[0])
octave: symbol lookup error: /usr/libexec/octave/3.0.3/oct/i386-redhat-linux-gnu/__glpk__.oct: undefined symbol: _glp_lib_fault_hook

Expected results:
Function output.

Additional info:
Similar bug was found in the build of Debian's octave package and they have fixed it.
Comment 1 Alex Lancaster 2009-09-07 01:36:32 EDT
I can reproduce this on F-11:  octave-3.0.5-1.fc11.x86_64

> glpk([1],[1],[0])
octave: symbol lookup error: /usr/libexec/octave/3.0.5/oct/x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu/__glpk__.oct: undefined symbol: _glp_lib_fault_hook

This may be fixed by octave 3.2 but it will be a while before that is backported to F-11, probably.  I'll look into how Debian fixed it.
Comment 2 Rakesh Pandit 2009-09-24 03:16:46 EDT
I can also reproduce it on F10 and F11

octave:1> glpk([1],[1],[0])
octave: symbol lookup error: /usr/libexec/octave/3.0.3/oct/i386-redhat-linux-gnu/__glpk__.oct: undefined symbol: _glp_lib_fault_hook

Will check with importing the patch or looking around ..

Comment 5 Alex Lancaster 2009-10-27 17:13:15 EDT
Fixes it for me too.  Can you visit the bodhi update:


login and give it a positive karma point if it fixes it for you too?
