I got this same problem. I write the software author (Chih-Jen Lin), he said that we need to modify make.m, add -largeArrayDims on 64-bit machines.

(64-bit mex files using sparse matrices must be rebuilt with the "-largeArrayDims" option. ...)" But I've still got this problem, even when I compile my GibbsSamplerAT.cpp file with the -largeArrayDims flag. GibbsSamplerAT.cpp: In function ‘void mexFunction(int, mxArray**, int, const mxArray**)’: GibbsSamplerAT.cpp:265: error: cannot convert ‘mwIndex*’ to ‘int*’ in assignment GibbsSamplerAT.cpp:266: error: cannot convert ‘mwIndex*’ to ‘int*’ in assignment GibbsSamplerAT.cpp:385: error: cannot convert ‘mwIndex*’ to ‘int*’ in assignment GibbsSamplerAT.cpp:386: error: cannot convert ‘mwIndex*’ to ‘int*’ in assignment GibbsSamplerAT.cpp:417: error: cannot convert ‘mwIndex*’ to ‘int*’ in assignment GibbsSamplerAT.cpp:418: error: cannot convert ‘mwIndex*’ to ‘int*’ in assignment Here are lines 265 and 266: irad = mxGetIr(prhs[2]); jcad = mxGetJc(prhs[2]); , where 'irad' and 'jcad' are defined as *int. I tried casting them to mwIndex*, but got further errors. Someone at this link http://www.stanford.edu/~dgleich/programs/matlab_bgl/faq.html said to "update to Matlab BGL 2.1 which includes precompiled files for 64-bit linux with support for largeArrayDims included". I have no idea how to do this. I downloaded the BGL, but I have no idea how to install it. I'm totally stumped. Any help much appreciated.
