It was working until I did "yum update" today.... It seems to be related to X and FC9. I have installations of mathematica 6.0 on i386 and x86_64 machines, of both fc5 and fc9 vintages. selinux is _disabled_ on all machines. >From the fc5 machines, mathematica starts locally and runs on local displays without a problem. After an ssh login to the fc9 remote machine, mathematica can start and run normally with display on the fc5 X session. From the fc9 machines, ssh to the fc5 machine and run mathematica works and displays on the local fc9 X display. Local running of mathematica on the fc9 machines is hooped (including - defaultvisual) and ssh to another fc9 machine does not either give a functional system. luck. .p.
