* The listed distributions are those Linux distributions that MathWorks products have been validated against. It is likely that other distributions with kernel version 2.6 or later and glibc version 2.11 or later can successfully run MathWorks products, but MathWorks will be in a limited position to provide technical support for those distributions.
** You can find more information in Solution 1-B3MR75.

License Management

  • Some license types require a license server running FLEXnet v11.11.1.2, which is provided by the MathWorks installer. A license server that is serving multiple releases of MATLAB must use the version of FLEXnet shipped with the latest release of MATLAB being served.
  • TCP/IP is required on all platforms when using a license server.

Support for Products on Operating Systems No Longer Supported

If you are enrolled in Software Maintenance Service, MathWorks will respond to technical questions and provide workarounds when possible for a period of two years from the date when MathWorks ended support for an operating system. See the platform road map for more information.
