Wolfram Mathematica is a powerful computational package installed on the CSL Workstations as well as on other computers throughout the school. The Computer Systems Lab also runs the Mathematica License Server (mathlm) on License which is used by all client systems in the school.
Currently, the latest Mathematica installers and support files are kept in
/afs/csl.tjhsst.edu/common/sysadmin/mathematica. If the latest installers are not available, ask one of the TJ Site Administrators to download the latest installers.
To install Mathematica, make sure the installer is set it as executable, and run it. Currently, we install Mathematica to
/opt/mathematica and the symlinks to
After installing Mathematica, run the following commands to configure Mathematica to pull licensing information from License:
rm /opt/mathematica/Configuration/Licensing/playerpass cp /afs/csl.tjhsst.edu/common/sysadmin/mathematica/mathpass /opt/mathematica/Configuration/Licensing/
If you are installing Mathematica on a Gentoo system, you can use the following commands to automatically add the Mathematica symlinks to the system PATH:
cp /afs/csl.tjhsst.edu/common/sysadmin/mathematica/75mathematica /etc/env.d/ env-update source /etc/profile
Finally, verify that Mathematica is installed and licensed by starting either the GUI or CLI clients:
#GUI mathematica #CLI math
