Matlab 2007 under Fedora 7

Now, trying to install Matlab 2007 under Fedora 7, (as root), I got the following answer:

[root@localhost matlab]# /media/MATHWORKS_R2007A/install &
[1] 4217
[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.
