I'm running 4.2.1 (hg_id 1327ea4f5a93) on Linux and I'm getting the missing base-lu.h file when running:

pkg install -forge communications

Is the patch still required for 4.2.1?

What OS, what version of communication, how did you add the patches, and what error do you get attempting to install ?

Octave 4.2.1 here. Cannot build the communications package, even with patches from mxe-octave bellow.

Still an issue with communications, if installing via octave forge with octave 4.2.0

I checked in this temporary fix for mxe-octave:


I'm not claiming this patch is complete or the best fix, but it does allow me to build the communications package with mxe-octave now.

In later dev octave, issues also appear with other files that have changed:

In file included from galois-def.cc:21:0:
galois.h:25:28: fatal error: octave/base-lu.h: No such file or directory
#include <octave/base-lu.h>

Confirmed on hg default branch, thanks for testing. Will add a test to configure to detect whether the header should be "ls-oct-ascii.h" or "ls-oct-text.h".

Attempting to build communications 1.2.1 against current dev branch of octave fails as it can not find header "ls-oct-ascii.h"

This file was removed in dev octave via commit
