Unwanted link

I am trying to install Matlab on my SUSE system and I initially had the problem that as I had my hostname defined by dchp, the localhost name kept jumping about. Now I have turned that off I have the hostname "linux" which is all well and good. However I still have this annoying link that I don't know how to get rid of in the form:

Checking license file for local hostname and local hostid . . .

Taking down any existing license manager daemons . . .

No license manager daemons running . . .

Starting license manager . . .

Debug logfile = /var/tmp/lm_TMW.log
ln: creating symbolic link `/var/tmp/lm_TMW.vd1' to `/home/mat/Matlab/etc/glnxa64/lm_matlab': File exists
Note: License manager still has not started properly . . .
You may still be waiting for redundant servers to
communicate properly. Check the end of the logfile for any
additional messages by using the command 'lmstart -e'.

When I do the lmstart -e I get:

LM_LOGFILE - /var/tmp/lm_TMW.log . . .
Thu May 18 23:30:36 BST 2006 LM_LOGFILE (last 10 lines)

102 16:12:50 (lmgrd) Using license file "/var/tmp/lm_TMW.dat"


So as far as I can see I have a link somewhere that points to a file which thinks that my hostname is dchppc1 somewhere and I can't quite figure it out. Can anyone suggest anything?

I think you're misreading.
"linux": Not a valid server hostname, exiting. <<< suggests that linux hostname is not okay
Valid license server system hosts are: "dhcppc1" <<< suggests that the lic. server must be dhcppc1... but is this system the 'license server'?

you can try
edit /etc/hostname from linux to dhcppc1
and run /etc/init.d/hostname restart

...but I think you have a licensing issue.
