Matlab 2022b installer is unable to start on an OpenRC (non-Systemd Linux) system

57 views (last 30 days)
Dear all,
Installer of Matlab 2022b first claimed that it cannot open a window.
Following answers on the Mathworks site and installing a few "missing" libraries (by running
./bin/glnxa64/QMATLABWindow
and installing the next missing one then re-running it) I quickly hit
error while loading shared libraries: libsystemd.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I am stuck here as on my Gentoo box with OpenRC (rather than Systemd) as the init system I cannot simultaneously install systemd.
I would be greatful for helping me out. Thank you in advance,
Tamas

Dear Miles, thanks for your suggestion. I have came across this one and found out that it is unnecessary, as only libdbus depends on libsystemd and thus only replaced libdbus-1.so.3 first. Currently I'm also replacing libstdc++.so.6 and libjawt (plus libpython3.8.so.1.0).
Let me update the current situation for those who are interested:
I'm still in contact with the supporting team and the install process was lately done via the "silent install" method. MATLAB itself is not yet running. I will update when obtain a working MATLAB. On the other hand, it does not seem to be an OpenRC issue anymore but the origin is still not clear.
