Subject: COMSOL 4.0 Installation 

I've installed COMSOL 4.0 for 32/64 bit Linux in /cvs/cds/caltech/apps/linux64/COMSOL40/

It seems to work, sort of.


Notes:

  1. It did NOT work according to the instructions. The CentOS automount had mounted /dev/scd0 on /media/COMSOL40. In this configuration, I was getting a permission denied error when trying to run the default setup script. I did a 'sudo umount /dev/scd0' to get rid of this bad mount and then remounted using 'sudo mount /dev/dvd /mnt'. After doing this, I ran the setup script '/mnt/setup' and got the GUI which started installing as usual.
  2. I also pointed it at the linux64/matlab/ installation.
  3. It seems to not work right on Rosalba because of my previous java episode. The x-forwarding from megatron also fails. It does work on allegra, however.
