NAG Toolbox for MATLAB®


x86-32 Linux, MATLAB R2010b

Post Release Information

This implementation is applicable to computer systems described in section 2.1 of the Installer's Note (see Installer's Note, Applicability).

Any additional information related to this implementation, that came to light after the release of this product, is described below.

  1. Problems invoking MATLAB from the console

    When certain libraries are loaded into memory with MATLAB in -nodesktop or -nojvm mode under the bash shell, output no longer appears on the terminal after exiting. This is a known bug in MATLAB.

    There are two known workarounds:

    1. Run MATLAB under a different shell. For example, neither tcsh or zsh have this issue.

    2. Reset the terminal after MATLAB exits by running the 'reset' command.

    For more information, see the problem description on the MathWorks website.

  2. MATLAB R2011a & R2011b Suitability

    This implementation has been tested with MATLAB versions 7.12 (R2011a) and 7.13 (R2011b) and is considered suitable for use with those versions.

    Unfortunately, it is not considered suitable for use with MATLAB version 7.14 (R2012a).

  3. Routine f08yy

    In MATLAB R2011a and later versions, users may see a series of messages of the form "MKL ERROR: Parameter 20 was incorrect on entry to ZTGSYL" when they call f08yy. This is due to incompatibilities between different versions of LAPACK loaded into MATLAB, and should not affect the accuracy of the results returned.
