matlab 2009B will not launch on RHEL6.0


I have an RHEL 6.0 HP HPCC (16 BL280 Blades) system which was vendor loaded (by HP) which was delivered to my site. I then loaded Matlab 2009B onto it. Now, for the life of me, I cannot get Matlab to launch correctly. I get the splash screen, and then I should get the matlab “desktop” but it never appears. The splash screen never goes away either, and it just stays like that. I can run Matlab in nodesktop mode fine…. But my user community needs it. I have successfully loaded matlab 2X now, from different media, just to make sure it was not corrupted or what-not. Any ideas/experience with this?

have you contacted mathworks seeing as matlab is proprietary
you did buy the program and got the required activation keys

http://www.mathworks.com/products/ma...uirements.html
http://www.mathworks.com/products/matlab/

http://www.mathworks.com/products/ma...g.html?tab=com


if you did not pay for this older 2009 version of matlab
then you might want to look into the opensource Octave
it should be in the RHN repo
Code:
su -
yum search octave
there also should be a QT front end " qtoctave"

The Mathworks is working this issue too, no word yet though, and it's been a couple of weeks. The install DOES work in "no graphic" mode... (launch: matlab -nodesktop). So the install is good.

is x11 installed on the rhel6 server?
normally it is not
normally there is no gui
as in Gnome is not installed by default


so how was the " Gnome desktop environment " on this server ?
by HP or by you

to check what of gnome is installed run
Code:
su -
rpm -qa | grep gnome
it should be a very long list

I get 72 qty for the *gnome* rpm

I get 83 qty for the *x11* rpm

When HP installed the machine(s) they loaded basically everything except Virtualization.

The xeyes works...

matlab 2009B launch on RHEL6.0

Hi - It turns out that I needed to load the "Exceed Megapatch" on the PC I was using to "Exceed" into the RHEL6 machine. It works fine now. Thanks.
