need help installing matlab 2008a


Hey um trying to install matlab for unix 2008a without any success.. I realy need help in this regard.. When I mount the ISO image and open the matlab directory and run 'install &' or './install' .. It gives an error like

-------------------------------------------------------------------
An error status was returned by the program 'xsetup',
the X Window System version of 'install'. The following
messages were written to standard error:

/mnt/ISO/update/bin/glnx86/xsetup: error while loading shared libraries: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Attempt to fix the problem and try again. If X is not available
or 'xsetup' cannot be made to work then try the terminal
version of 'install' using the command:

install* -t or INSTALL* -t
-------------------------------------------------------------------

after that if I use 'install -t' after agreeing to the license agreement it gives an error like this one..

-------------------------------------------------------------------
/mnt/ISO/update/bin/glnx86/xsetup: error while loading shared libraries: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
-------------------------------------------------------------------

I went to matlab site for troubleshooting information they said disabling the selinux will resolve the problem but it didn't .. BTW I ran all the commands as root...

Can anyone please help me around

Thanx

I seem to recall having a similar problem, do you have any version of the libXp file in /usr/lib?

I created a symbolic link from /usb/lib/libXp.so.6.2.0 by typing
ln -s /usr/lib/libXp.6.2.0 /usr/lib/libXp.6

I may have had to install the libXp package first.

Which system are you running on? You have to install the relevant package for your distribution. It may have different names on different distros.

You can use the package manager and look for libXp. On my system running fedora 8 I have libXp-1.0.0-8.fc8 (and Matlab successfully installed).

Which option you used to install Matlab 2008a. If you installed for x86_64,but your architecture is x86,this problem can happen. Mine was x86.I tried to install for x86_64 and setup quit without proceeding to activation.
