help with choosing a platform and installing MATLAB

i have a license for individual HOME use of the MATLAB software and SIMLINK with some assorted additional packages.

i have a beat up chromebook 4 with the average 256G four barreled edelbrach, etc. i understand math and physics not computers. what would be my choices for an optimum system to handle a local install of the MATLAB software coupled to a versatile linux platform. The only communication links im interested in are between sensors, test equipment, and the in/out buses between them. However, the additional coding and data piplines of the various open source licenses i also plan to use (with strict attention to code of conduct compliance i will say).

THE WHOLE POINT IS WHAT DISTRIBUTION OF LINUX WIIL BE THE MOST USEFUL FOR INDIVIDUAL INSTALL OF MATLAB SOFTWARE.

  • G'day Ryan, Welcome to linux.org
Minimum of 2 GB RAM per MATLAB worker is recommended. If you are using Simulink, 4GB RAM per worker is recommended. Approximately 20GB of disk space to accommodate a typical complete installation of MATLAB Parallel Server. With a quad core processor or better.

All that translates to :

8Gb of RAM (plenty of grunt)

250GB SSD (this is a solid state drive......very fast)

Processor. Someone here will have more knowledge of multiple core processors than I do.

The Linux OS (operating system)

Perhaps someone here already has a system set up similar to what you want/need

Personally I would be inclined to go for reliability....probably Debian or Linux Mint.

By mentioning a few members names here it will alert them of this topic.....possibly they may have some input....or know another member who does

Salude,

as i said i would try to keep myself informed of what the heck ive done.

powered my chromebook up (bluebird). OS verify has been off linux beta with debugging on (partialy it always says). i use usb tethering frm a samsung a10e from wal mart as a connect (cave man live under a rock). two gmail accounts i am sighned into the phone with, synced with a prepaid phone number ive had for years.

(side note i have about 10 phone numbers and possibly twice that in gmail. none i have been able to access unless i drop down into Oklahoma)

prompted to update the factory installed OS to 84.0.4147.127.

i did

tried to sighn in as [email protected] (the original sighn in owner but powerwashed maybe three times. useless and a waste of my time). made it to the password prompt and hit a endless loop of hit the return password please return password please cross product of the scaler density of space with entropy equals infinity.

sighned in successfully with the account linked to the MATLAB license

immediatly prompted to sighn in 'again' with the required....gmail account

i left it there as a commotion outside requires some attention.

read it if your nothing else to do. my memory sucks. vinyl still lives.

Ryan, I'll take a read of your Post momentarily, just a heads up first :)

When Brian listed those folks names with @ in front, it will have "pinged" them, and if they have time to swing by, or input to provide, they will do so. Once they read or contribute to your Thread here, they will be automatically "following" the Thread and will be alerted to new Posts.

No need to ping them every time you post, or they will hear a ringing in their ears :p

And don't even think of apologising ... each forum has its own little quirks and that is one of ours.

Cheers

Chris

aaahh, i will remember that . is the squirrelly 'a' then the equivalent to the tap and ring of the old land line phone system? All the documentation is intimidating to say the least. i clung to a sliderule for years now im fascinated.

Yep, it also autocompletes, which is handy if the person's userid is

urten-furTen-1234-urten-fuRten

... or similar

Just type in @urt

I have absolutely no idea. I've never used MATLAB.
WRT which distro - again, I don't know which systems MATLAB is packaged for.

I would imagine they'd at least support Debian and Red Hat/Fedora, so anything based on either of those would probably be your best bet!

Good morning, or whatever it is.

I have been reading documentation for a debian installation, however, my device(s)
All are of an arm architecture with a custom build on ancient, buggy to begin with firmware. I have trashed two chromebooks and about seven phones as it is quite impossible to get(for me) a non arm device even if I order one from out of state. I'm trying to study through the u-boot documentation, but my chromebook seems to be someones whore.

A little note here I found interesting. Any kind of network query I do on my devices turn up as 'unknown'. T- Mobile bought all of sprints cell pockets in this area some time ago. These little cells all operate around the 1.3 to 2. something Ghz range. The same frequency the core processors are on any device sold in this area. Internet integrity is poor here. Mertle and maude still listen on the switchboard and broadcast it you might say.

Call me paranoid, but its a running through the jungle paranoia, one of them trees does have rifle.

Not surprising being Chromebook is Google.

It just ain't Myrtle and Maude listening in.

If I understand you're running 100% wireless broadband correct.
Anyway to get a wire Ethernet connection.

correct, more or less i guess. my only connection to a network is through a usb wire to my phone; cellular data on a 'verizon' network carrier. well, the sloppy whore chromebook calls it ethernet but the MAC address changes every now and then; meaning the carrier must be to poor and local to grace their machines with individual MACs. i know i can set and save the environment var. but only if a proper install of command software is in the assembly eh?

i realize im jibber jabbering to folks having far more knowledge about these things than i can hope for. but im telling you there is some kind of screwy embedded network boot onto someones 'im the self proclaimed deputy dog' local hairball collection of google analytic passwords and addresses.

or somthing like that. One tree out there somewhere.

WHERE CAN I PURCHASE, TRADE, OR BARTER FOR COMPLETE VERSIONS OF A DEBIAN LINUX ALREADY ON A FLASHDRIVE, WITH MAYBE A U-BOOT OR SOMETHING TO TAKE CARE OF A RATTY ARM ARCHITECTURE. originating anywhere but kansas. i was born and bred here, but the schools still teach spontaneous generation and the earth as 6000 years old. Jesus H. Christ, what in the Hell is that kind of education?

anyway, thanks for the responses. im going to go out and bark at cars for awhile.
