James, FYI,  with the updates to Xcode and command lines tool, octave gui does work fine for me.


I am on fink 0.38.2.  To move to the 0.38.3 and to enable binary distribution of octave, what is the best way?

1) Maybe try logging out and back in again.  Maybe there’s a stale process which is blocking the GUI from starting.
Also, it might be possible that you have a bad preference file—I’ve experienced issues with those on various vintages of Mac OS for about 20 years. Unfortunately, I don’t happen to know right off the top of my head where the GUI puts that.  Someone else here should know.

2) That’s strictly up to you to decide.
