      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Problem running Matlab [solved]

Recommended Posts

Guest Addison

Hi all!

 

Can anyone help me with the following problem:

I installed Matlab 7 (R2010b)and did not encounter any problems during the installation procedure. The GUI took me through installation and activation and finished successfully. And now it won't run...

I tried to start up Matlab from the terminal (using the pathname to the installation directory and also from inside the installation directory) and I tried double clicking the matlab.exe file in the file system, but NOTHING HAPPENS! Not even een error message!

Does anyone out there have a clue why it won't run???

Hi, now I do get an error message:

 

"error while loading shared libraries: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

 

How do I fix this?

I solved the problem! Matlab is running!

 

The problem was a missing library that is named lib64xp6 for Mandriva and it belongs in usr/lib/

I downloaded and installed it, using "rpm -Uvh *.rpm --force" (Some kind of magic spell I found on another forum. I'm clueless how or why it works, but the point is.. IT DOES!)

And that was it, Matlab is working now!

You shouldn't need to download it manually. It could have been done using urpmi from the command line or even using the Software Package Manager gui under MCC.

"rpm -Uvh *.rpm --force" is defintely not a magic spell. It's an extremely bad practice, which is guaranteed to break your system.

NEVER, EVER install rpm's or similar stuff from sources outside your system's PMS. You will regret it, promised.
