Hi Bernhard,

I responded to your questions below.

Bernhard Layer-Reiss ( wrote:
: i would like to configure a high end system running Matlab for Linux using

Although we haven't tried or tested under this kernel, MATLAB should run.
Often it's more an issue of system shared libraries than the kernel itself
that prevents MATLAB from working properly.

: Will Matlab for Linux take advantage of Pentium Pro machines or even
: dual to quad Pro systems (thread programming of mathlab)?
MATLAB itself is not a threaded program. Future releases of MATLAB will
take advantage of threaded system libraries as they become available and

: If not which
: Linux 1.2.x kernel is recommended. How does the Linux version compare to
: the other Unix platforms ? Why doesn´t mathlab run under Linux 2.0.x (justin case)
For MATLAB 5.0 we're moving to the RedHat 4.0 release using the Linux 2.0.18
(Note: this is a change from my earlier posting about MATLAB Linux)

Here's the current MATLAB 5.0 min. required system shared libraries. => /usr/X11R6/lib/ => /usr/X11R6/lib/ => /usr/X11R6/lib/ => /lib/ => /usr/lib/ => /usr/lib/ => /usr/X11R6/lib/ => /usr/X11R6/lib/

Also MATLAB 4.2c appears to work just fine under the RedHat 4.0 distribution,
using the Linux 2.0.18 kernel. As for Linux 1.2.x kernels, the Linux 1.2.13
kernel is a very popular (RedHat 3.0.3 Dist.) and stable.
