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

Mathematica 6.01 + FBSD 6.3-release

2008-03-07 Thread Rich Winkel
I'm having problems getting the frontend running.  The kernel seems
to run fine.  Initially the linux loader wasn't seeing the libraries
under SystemFiles/Libraries/Linux (or at least

/compat/linux/usr/bin/ldd
couldn't find them when run on
SystemFiles/FrontEnd/Binaries/Linux/Mathematica )

So I installed
/compat/linux/etc/ld.so.conf.d/Mathematica.conf
containing
/usr/local/mma6/SystemFiles/Libraries/Linux
and ran linux's ldconfig, which updated  the cache and all was fine as
far as ldd was concerned.
But it still doesn't run and there are no errors.
Does anyone else have this running under 6.3?
Does it need to be installed under /compat/linux ?

Thanks for any help!

I have no experience of Mathematica. But you may need to brand the ELF type
on binary executables and possibly also the libraries you have installed.

# brandelf -t Linux file ...
See brandelf(1).
