are you running matlab? You might be running it in linux right?.

Ok. see I am running MATLAB in windows back ground.

I want to run that application when I am working in linux (RHL 9.0 ).

Is there any intermediate programs (Some effective windows emulators) for this in linux?

for this means for what ???

If U want Matlab to use in Linux, U can install Matlab in Linux... or if U want to use it in a windows OS, but while working on Linux, then get urself VMware or FreeBSD ... They are virtual machines, where u can have Windows and run Matlab on it, while the base OS is Linux.... or Vice Versa is also possible.. as in having a Base Windows OS, with a Virtual machine like VMware or FreeBSD and run Linux on it...

Or Try using WINE ..... Its a WIndows Compatibility layer for use in Linux.... and Matlab is supposed to run on it, even if u have it installed in Windows OS ....


for Matlab on wine, check this....


But I personally feel that if U wanna use Matlab on Linux, U better get a Linux version of Matlab... I know its expensive... but It wud be worth it if U r gonna be using Matlab for high end operations...

And you also have things like Octave / Koctave for Linux.... but I dun think U can perform Symbolic Operations on Octave...

But I have seen windows versions upto 6.5 and 7 is going to be released.

Latest Matlab for Linux available is 6.5.1

And this version seems to support a wide range of platforms...
