# Running octave from the sage notebook

I'm trying to run octave through the sage notebook. When I try to evaluate a cell (e.g. x = linspace(0,1,100)), I get the error message:

RuntimeError: Unable to start octave

Examining the traceback in more detail doesn't point to anything that suggests how to fix the problem, and I was wondering whether anyone else had this problem. Octave is installed on my computer, and runs fine from the command line. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks in advance!

That is cool, the syntax in OCTAVE is almost identical to MATLAB.. PS, can we use YALMIP under SAGE?
