Now, trying to install Matlab 2007 under Fedora 7, (as root), I got the following answer:
[root@localhost matlab]# /media/MATHWORKS_R2007A/install &
[root@localhost matlab]# ——————————————————————-
An error status was returned by the program ‘xsetup’,
the X Window System version of ‘install’. The following
messages were written to standard error:
/media/MATHWORKS_R2007A/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
Sorry! Setup aborted . . .
The solution was given at http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/newsreader/view_thread/153714, and consists on installing a missing library, right there, as root:
yum install libXp-devel
When finished, try to install Matlab again. It works.
