Mathematica via X11 ?
Hi, It may be a FAQ, in that case please point me to it. After some fight over the kitchen money, I purchased the Mathematica 9 Home Edition for Linux. I installed Mathematica on the machine having CentOs 6.3 into the /opt/math9 directory. Punching in the Activation key, activated the program and I could run my Benchmark. However this machine is a rack mounted server and in a few days it will go down to the basement and will not have a monitor attached to it. So I looked if I can fire up Mathematica via X11 from my MacBook Pro. I connected to the server and issued 'xclock'. Xclock showed up. So far so good. Then I issued: [root@sm1 math9]# /opt/bin/math Mathematica 9.0 for Linux x86 (64-bit) Copyright 1988-2012 Wolfram Research, Inc. Mathematica cannot find a valid password. For automatic Web Activation enter your activation key (enter return to skip Web Activation): You will need to get a password from your license certificate or from Wolfram Research (http://register.wolfram.com). Machine name: sm1.infocean.org MathID: xxx-xxxxx-xxxxx You will need a valid activation key and password in order to proceed. Go to http://user.wolfram.com to register your activation key and obtain the password. Enter your Activation key [format xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxx]: xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxx Enter your password: yyyyyyyyyyyy The password you entered is not valid. Please press Enter to quit. So, three questions: 1. Why do I need to web activate if I already activated it with the activation key supplied when I purchased the program ? 2. What configuration changes are needed to be able to use it via X11 from my MacBook Pro ? 3. If X11 is a no go, then what is the right way to use it ? Vnc ? =85.? Thanks ahead, J=E1nos P.S. The reason for the server install is that it is more powerful than my MacBook.
