I’m working in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 8 ) environment.
I configured dynare using the following command:
./configure --prefix=/software/dynare/v4.1.3 --with-boost=/software/Boost/v1.41.0 --with-matlab=/software/matlab_2009b MATLAB_VERSION=R2009b
This worked fine. I then did a “make”, “make html”, “make check” and a “make install”.
Everything seems to work fine except that the output from the “make check” included the following:
Making check in tests
make: Entering directory
/software/dynare/dynare-4.1.3/tests' make check-local make: Entering directory/software/dynare/dynare-4.1.3/tests’
error: invalid number of indices (= 0) for 2-dimensional array
error: evaluating argument list element number 1
make: *** [check-octave] Error 1
make: Leaving directory
/software/dynare/dynare-4.1.3/tests' make: *** [check-am] Error 2 make: Leaving directory/software/dynare/dynare-4.1.3/tests’
make: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
I was not able to determine a fix or the seriousness of this error so I simply pressed on…
I added /software/dynare/dynare-4.1.3/matlab to my Matlab path and tried to fire up dynare on example1.mod. The log of my attempt in R2009b is as follows:
??? An error occurred while trying to determine whether “dynare_version” is a
Unexpected error status flag encountered. Resetting to proper state.
I’ve no clue as to why this happened. I made sure that I had the necessary permissions to all files in /software/dynare/dynare-4.1.3/matlab and things looked appropriate.
Then, on a whim, I figured to try the same experiment under matlab R2007b. The log of that attempt is as follows:

Now I’m completely mystified.
I would appreciate it if anyone could enlighten me as to what is happening and what I should do to get around these problems.
Thanks much for any help you can provide!
