I guess it will.  The Mathematica binaries are statically linked, so the
exaclt libraries your distribution contains should matter at all.

I've got it running on Debian, and I've seen it running on SuSE.

I had some problems getting it installed directly from the CD though.  I
solved it by copying the CD to my harddisk, and installing from there.

Kind regards,
