Your default java is too new. You need to change it to be 1.8

I did update https://wiki.octave.org/Octave_for_Debian_systems

With these packages it is possible to compile Octave dev on a clean Debian 10.

However, I cannot compile stable yet:

Installing texlive-latex-extra did the trick!

Perhaps somebody could update https://wiki.octave.org/Octave_for_Debian_systems

On Fedora, epsf.tex comes with its own package:



rpm -qi texlive-epsf-svn21461.2.7.4-15.fc31.noarch

...

Summary     : Simple macros for EPS inclusion
Description :
The original (and now obsolescent) graphics inclusion macros
for use with dvips, still widely used by Plain TeX users (in
particular). For LaTeX users, the package is nowadays (rather
strongly) deprecated in favour of the more sophisticated
standard LaTeX graphics bundle of packages. (The graphics
bundle is also available to Plain TeX users, via its Plain TeX
version.)

Your build.log says "epsf.tex not found, images will be ignored." I don't know whether that's considered a warning or an error, but I don't see it in my build output.

My guess is you are missing TeX packages necessary for building the user manual. Can you try installing texlive-fonts-recommended and texlive-latex-extra?

I see this frequently when building on Debian testing, and for me the underlying error is bug #55225.

You'll need to look in the build directory 'doc/interpreter/octave.t2d/doc!interpreter!octave.t2d/dvi/build' for the file 'octave.log' for the full output of the TeX command to see what the real error is.

If the error is a missing .eps or .pdf image file, then it's bug #55225.

Rest assured, this is not a blocker for entering Debian, version 5.2.0 is already in Debian sid and Ubuntu focal-proposed.

I attachted a file with the output of "make -j1 V=1"

(file #48397)

Can you do "make -j1 V=1" and post the error message?

There was another build failure which was fixed by repeating "make", but this one is persistent.

It is a know problem. If you do "make" again it would finish.

I just installed Debian 10 (bullseye), the current testing and tried to buiuld Octave.
I am able to compile current dev binaries successfully, using this dependencies:

sudo apt-get install gcc g++ gfortran make libblas-dev liblapack-dev libpcre3-dev libarpack2-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev epstool libfftw3-dev fig2dev libfltk1.3-dev libfontconfig1-dev libfreetype6-dev libgl2ps-dev libglpk-dev libreadline-dev gnuplot libgraphicsmagick++1-dev libhdf5-dev openjdk-13-jdk libsndfile1-dev llvm-dev texinfo libgl1-mesa-dev libosmesa6-dev pstoedit portaudio19-dev libjack-jackd2-dev libqhull-dev libqrupdate-dev libqt5core5a qtbase5-dev qttools5-dev qttools5-dev-tools
libqscintilla2-qt5-dev libsuitesparse-dev texlive libxft-dev zlib1g-dev autoconf automake bison flex gperf gzip icoutils librsvg2-bin libtool perl rsync tar libsundials-dev git mercurial

However, make later fails while building the docs:

  MAKEINFO ../doc/interpreter/octave.info
  TEXI2DVI doc/interpreter/octave.dvi
  MAKEINFO doc/interpreter/octave.html/.octave-html-stamp
/usr/bin/texi2dvi: etex exited with bad status, quitting.
make[2]: *** [Makefile:31069: doc/interpreter/octave.dvi] Fehler 1
make[2]: *** Es wird auf noch nicht beendete Prozesse gewartet....
make[2]: Verzeichnis „/home/kinder/usr/octave-default/BUILD“ wird verlassen
make[1]: *** [Makefile:27399: all-recursive] Fehler 1
make[1]: Verzeichnis „/home/kinder/usr/octave-default/BUILD“ wird verlassen
make: *** [Makefile:11034: all] Fehler 2

Debian testing currently contains Octave 5.1.0.
I think it is neccessary to be in Debian testing to be included in the next Ubuntu LTS
