how to install matlab?

I would like to install Matlab6.5 on my debian system. I got the CD's I've used to install it on my Windows computer. Can I use them to install Matlab on my Debian system aswell or do I need a patch or a set of new CD's?

Well, you need Matlab compiled for Linux. Contact your Matlab supplier. You should get Matlab for Linux free of charge if you already payed the licence.

I think the linux version is also on the cds:

Simply insert the CD and run (as root) /mnt/cdrom/

On a side note, I have found that Matlab 6.5 doesn't run to well with a 2.6 kernel if you have one.

The command to start matlab is "matlab"

I hope this helps
