Follow-up Comment #1, bug #34010 (project octave):


The symbolic package is unmaintained, and even if it were maintained, it's not
a core Octave package, supposedly maintained by a different team than the
present one to which you are reporting the bug.

Nobody in Ubuntu, as far as I know, is watching the Octave bug reports,
although I take a peek every few months to see what's up. So the Ubuntu bug
reports about Octave are mostly a black hole.

So I don't have much consolation for you. Even when the symbolic package does
work (the Debian packages do work; no idea why the Ubuntu packages don't
work), I find it pretty useless. Octave isn't meant for symbolic computation,
and if you really do need it, I think you're better off using GiNaC directly
which the package wraps.

I think you're on your own. I'm trying to fix at least one of these problems,
namely, that you are reporting the bug to theh "wrong" people (Octave-Forge
packages supposedly have their own mailing list and bug reports separate from
core Octave).
