Subject: Matlab on Megatron 
Matlab now works on megatron.

I did a few things:

1) Added to the PATH environment variable. Did this in .bash_profile in the /home/controls directory by adding the line

PATH=$PATH:/cvs/cds/caltech/apps/linux64/matlab/bin/
export PATH

This probably should be somewhere else up further up the line, but I was too lazy to figure it out.

2)Fixed a gateway mistake I had added earlier so the megatron could use the NAT router and see the outside world so yum worked.

3) Removed the i386 based libXp and openmotif packages.

4) Installed the x86_64 based libXp and openmotif packages.

Edit: Forgot that I also added the following line to the /etc/fstab file in order to mount the shared code. This was stolen directly from Rosalba's /etc/fstab file. This was so that it could see the matlab code.
linux1:/home/cds/ /cvs/cds nfs rw,bg,soft 0 0
