MATLAB Simplified Install
A quick sketch of the install (Please engage in the Discussion to improve documentation of these steps):
- Download and install MATLAB (to get download rights contact your local IT person or firstname.lastname@example.org )
- Add the following content to the network.lic file in the installation
SERVER lmgr.uabgrid.uab.edu 27000 USE_SERVER
On Mac's this file is located in /Applications/MATLAB_R2010a.app/licenses/network.lic
On Linux systems it is usually located at /usr/local/matlabR2010a/licenses/network.lic (conditional to the install location being /usr/local)
libXp.so.6 Error when starting MATLAB on a Red Hat / Fedora workstation
When executing 'matlab' on a Red Hat / Fedora workstation you may receive the following error:
'bin/glnxa64/MATLAB: error while loading shared libraries: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
The solution is to install the libXp package (this will require root privileges)
$ sudo yum install libXp
