Problem with Matlab and Fedora 7-X_64

Fri Feb 8 13:55:54 UTC 2008

Hi there --
Listed below is the procedure that has worked for us. Let me know if you have
similar success.
How to install the 32bit version of Matlab onto a 64bit Linux workstation 

Example - Red Hat Enterprise Linux

In order to install 32bit MATLAB on a 64bit Linux machine running Linux, it is
necessary to use one

of the following workarounds:

Run the following command syntax: ./install -glnx86 -x

                                                            -glnx86 - use 32bit
architecture instead of 64bit

                                                            -x - run in X window

Once the installation is completed, the user will need to run in 32bit mode as
opposed to 64bit

mode. The command syntax in this case is the following:

                                                        matlab glnx86

Subject: Problem with Matlab and Fedora 7-X_64

Hi All,


            We have recently acquired a server with 2 Intel Xeon quad-core
processors (8 processors in total) , 16 GB of RAM, and 500GB of Hard Disk. It is
running Fedora 7 X-64. It has all of its updates and is working ok, other than
an annoyance of not being able to forward X-11 via SSH, even though it is turned
on in the sshd_config file.   The problem is when I try and install Matlab, on
this system it is reporting the following error 


"error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object
file: No such file or directory"


If I try and place the into a network installed version of Matlab,
then it gives me an ELF error that I do not know.


Is anyone else having similar problems? Is there a work around for this?


Thanks in advance
