First of all, I would like to transmit my congratulations for the new features
of gretl, I think they are new steps in the way to obtain a very complete
GNU econometric program.
I would also like to report some small problems with this new version:
(This time I am running gretl-1.2.4 in Spanish with Linux Mandrake 10.0)
- I had libpng.so.3 installed but the installation of gretl had a dependency
problem with libpng.so.2, so finally I had to install a package from another
distribution (different from Mandrake) having exactly the library
- The accents appear correctly in the graphs (using gnuplot installed trough
your RPM file), and saving the graph in a file as .EPS they are shown
correctly, but if I save two or more graphs in the "session-graphic page",
the accents are not displayed.
- In generating this "session-graphic page" with several plots, I think dvips
should be invoqued with the option "-o '%S.ps'" , because I have just
installed Mandrake 10.0 and the default option for dvips was sending the file
to the default printer. I had to change the config.ps file in my Tetex
distribution to do this "graphic-page" work correctly.
-Untranslated string: "convergence achieved after 10 iterations" appears in
ARMAX and GARCH.
