I don't have any experience with Mathematica, but this happens with Maple and Matlab too, so it's probably nothing to worry about. Maple and Matlab are started with a shell script which sets up a proper environment (where to find libs and such other variables) before starting the real program. In my experience it's better to run them with /compat/linux/bin/sh and not the FreeBSD /bin/sh used by default. So to run Matlab for instance I use: /compat/linux/bin/sh /compat/linux/opt/matlab-7.0.1/bin/matlab If Mathematica uses such a startup script as well, it could be worth a try. In that case you should also try if you can run /compat/linux/bin/ls. If you get an error related to librt, you need to create this softlink: ln -s ../../lib/librt-2.3.6.so /compat/linux/usr/lib/librt.so.1 _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
