Matlab 14.3 startup script not executable via yast2


I have a minor problem with starting the matlab license manager automatically at boot time.

I use the standard matlab startup script in /etc/init.d/


case "$1" in
if [ -f /etc/lmboot_TMW ]; then
/etc/lmboot_TMW -u tomatoefish && echo 'MATLAB_lmgrd'
if [ -f /etc/lmdown_TMW ]; then
/etc/lmdown_TMW > /dev/null 2>&1
echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop}"
exit 1

exit 0

I can run the script manually, doing script start/stop. However when I try to start this script in yast2 the script stalls the runlevel editor. Stop works as expected. I presume the same happens when I try this at boot time.

I think the error might be related to the fact that the lmboot_TMW has to be run as a user and not as root. The same procedure worked on the latest release of fedora. Any suggestions appreciated?

Thanks in advance!
