Re: Mathematica on Linux


Tom,

I am running Mathematica 5.0.1 on Redhat 9 and don't have any of the problems you 
mention.  You didn't say which version of Linux you are running, but I 
suspect that your OS is corrupted, is not recent enough the have the 
correct lib....so's or your Mathematica install is corrupted.

Not much help I know.  Good luck,
Bob Walker
