Matlab 2018a is crashing at launch on CentOS 7. I believe it was working until the most recent CentOS point release.

Double checked. R2018a works on CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708 (Core). It crashes on CentOS Linux release 7.5.1804 (Core).

This does not address the issue on our CentOS 7.4.1708 system.
  • With a remote X display, starting as "matlab -nojvm" works fine
  • With a remote X display, starting as "matlab -nodisplay" works fine
  • With a remote X display, starting as "matlab" crashes with the error cited by Erik on this ticket
  • Without a remote X display, starting as "matlab" works fine
The problem appears to be related to changes to X11 support libraries on CentOS: if I add "/usr/lib64/libglvnd" to LD_LIBRARY_PATH then the Matlab GUI works properly. The libglvnd is a vendor-neutral set of X11 libraries (including a that seem to have replaced libraries of the same name under /usr/lib64. When the Matlab GUI tries to load X11 extension libraries at runtime, it crashes because e.g. libGLX can no longer be found by the runtime linker.
My solution ended up being to add the following /etc/ to the system
as root and issue a ldconfig to get libglvnd's X11 extensions known in general.
