It would be helpful to know what beta is. If your system is solveable, you should get
a result. A single number result for a six dimensional system would be unexpected.

Here is a smaller example:

In[2]:= beta = {{1,2},{3,4}}
Out[2]= {{1,2},{3,4}}
In[3]:= Solve[beta.{x1,x2}\[Equal]{1.,0},{x1,x2}]
Out[3]= {{x1\[Rule]-2.,x2\[Rule]1.5}}
In[4]:= LinearSolve[beta,{1.,0.}]
Out[4]= {-2.,1.5}
