This should be fixed with this change (for bug #57033):

Closing report.

building without --disable-64 works, with the suitesparse version I had installed.

I hadn't attempted building octave 64-bit on my platform for a long time, since I couldn't get it to build, but dev did build without any issues, passes all tests.

So I guess a good moment to switch to 64-bit for me (and upgrade to a more recent suitesparse version).

I can confirm the error during compilation when configuring with `--disable-64`.

Using file #50671 from bug #57033 allows me to build successfully with that configuration

However, using qr (e.g. with `test spaugment`) fails with error -4 (CHOLMOD_INVALID /* failure: invalid input */). So it still doesn't work after that change...

I'll comment on bug #50761 for the probable cause.

good hunch, yes I did use --disable-64

Do you have configured with `--disable-64`? If so, this might be caused by us using the wrong integer pointer types which might cause the signatures to not match. See also bug #57033 (starting at around comment #38 there).

I have:

find . | grep -i 'suit.*conf'


 find . | grep spqr

Which version of SuiteSparse - or more specifically SPQR - do you have installed?
The approx. 8.5 years old version here declares the function with the signature we are using:

a recent dev version fails to build with QR related errors, whereas the build was successful up to recently.
