Hi, Did you manage to solve your problem with Mathematica yet? I had to deal with several issues after the same upgrade but now I got it solved. First of all, did you install the "shlibs" package from SuSE ? If not, please install it. Next, did replace the exec files with their dynamically linked versions on the CD? If not, you have to do the following (according to Wolfram´s website): In order to install and run the dynamically link Mathematica binaries, you will need to do the following Copy the following files from the Mathematica 4.2 cd into their respective locations in your Mathematica directory. You may want to keep the Linux directories. Files/SystemFiles/Kernel/Binaries/Linux-dyn Files/SystemFiles/Kernel/SystemResources/Linux-dyn Files/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/Binaries/Linux-dyn Files/SystemFiles/Graphics/Binaries/Linux-dyn Files/SystemFiles/Converters/Binaries/Linux-dyn You will then need to edit the Mathematica scripts, so that Mathematica will run the libraries. The following locations will contain the scripts that need to edited, /[Top_Mathematica_Directory]/Executables/Linux/ /usr/local/bin Open these scripts in a text editor math Mathematica MathKernel mathematica You will need to change the following line, which is located toward the beginning of the scrips. sysid=Linux so that it now reads sysid=Linux-dyn Finally, you will probablly not be able to run Mathematica yet do to GLIB conflicts, ie., you may get the message: MathKernel: relocation error: MathKernel: symbol errno, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference But I found out that all you need to do is to set: export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 That should get Mathematica working for you!! Best, Harry.
