Subject: Installed matlab on WS2 

Installed matlab on WS2 in /usr/local/matlab.

At first when I ran it the following error came up:

/usr/local/matlab/bin/glnxa64/MATLAB: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/local/matlab/bin/glnxa64/../../bin/glnxa64/../../bin/glnxa64/libtbbmalloc.so.2: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied

This is because of a problem with SELinux.  Turning SELinux off using /usr/sbin/setenforce 0   allows matlab to run, confirming that this is the problem.  Following the advice on this page:


I executed the following commands to get it working with SELinux on.

/usr/sbin/setsebool -P allow_execheap=1

chcon -t texrel_shlib_t /usr/local/matlab/bin/glnxa64/*.so*
chcon -t texrel_shlib_t /usr/local/matlab/sys/java/jre/glnxa64/jre/lib/amd64/*.so

It all seems to be happy now.
