10.3: Using and installing MATLAB 6.5R13 with Panther Apps
After installing Mac OS X 10.3, I was wondering if MATLAB 6.5, which I use regularly, would still work. Since I initialized my disk before installing Panther, I had to reinstall MATLAB. The installation went smoothly, following the guidelines from this hint (see comment by UltraNurd) for installing MATLAB under Jaguar.

Everything worked fine, except 3D OpenGL rendering -- 3D commands will freeze the MATLAB engine. The MATLAB/X libraries must conflict with OpenGL libraries and the new integrated X11 implementation in Panther. You can actually make 3D graphics work by issuing the following command before calling 3D commands (mesh, surf, etc.):
opengl neverselect
I hope Mathworks will release R14 soon, with this problem resolved.

Relax: There's Matlab 6.5.1 (R13SP1), specifically patched for Panther already.

You'll be actually forced to use Apple's X11. I haven't tried it yet, though.

Mathworks tech note

Mathworks has posted a tech note to their website with instructions on installing or updating MATLAB on Panther.

The instructions apply to both R13 and R13SP1 under both Jaguar and Panther. There's also an updated Installer for download.

mex files and 10.3
Authored by: arjunraj on Oct 27, '03 01:39:30PM

Perhaps this is already pretty well known, but I found that I couldn't compile my C mex files after upgrading to Panther. It turns out that there are problems using gcc 3.3 with mex. To use the older version of gcc, try:

sudo gcc_select 3

After that, everything compiled just fine...

R14 is currently slated for release in the February 2004 timeframe.
