Yet another Comsol/Matlab compatibility question (problems in Red Hat)

  1. Jun 25, 2009 #1
    Hi all. Long time reader, first time poster (now that I have a question you might be able to answer ;-)

    I recently exported a mesh, a geometry (both as mphbin), and a weak form PDE model (as an m-file) from Comsol. Upon opening 'Matlab with Comsol', I had no problem executing the model m-file on either a server running up-to-date Solaris UNIX or a PC running Vista.

    I copied the same geometry, mesh, and m-file to a faster PC running RedHat Linux. When I try to execute the model m-file with Comsol/Matlab, the geometry and mesh files fail to load and I get several error messages (listed below). The m-file code for mesh and geometry import (automatically generated by Comsol) is also provided.

    (Note: This appears to be a Red Hat/Matlab specific error - Comsol is capable of handling meshes and executing the model on the Red Hat machine when I use the Comsol GUI.)

    Has anyone encountered this error?
    Does anyone know the cause (or propose possible causes)?
    Is there a known workaround for it?

    Any help would be appreciated - Thanks!
