ok so I am kinda new to linux, so bare with me.. I downloaded matlab and am trying to install it via mounting the iso image, but can't seem to get it right..
This is what I have been trying to do in the terminal so far, lemme know if I am doing this right.. thanks.
[[email protected] ~]# mkdir /Matlab
[[email protected] ~]# mount -t iso9660 -o loop ~/downloads/Matlab801_MacUnix.iso /Matlab
mount: /Matlab: mount failed: No such file or directory

What am I doing wrong I have no clue, since I am not that versed in linux info. thanks guys.

What does "ls /" (w/o quotes) show?

Or ls /Matlab?? either way nothing, nothing in the directory /Matlab, or same thing telling me mount failed.. ugh.

I think I got it..

[[email protected] ~]# ls
anaconda-ks.cfg Desktop Matlab Matlab801

okay so now I am in the Matlab801 directory, how do I install the rest..

Okay cowboy, slow down.

Looks like for whatever reason mkdir /Matlab made the directory in /root instead (so its /root/Matlab). So, try this:

mount -t iso9660 -o loop ~/downloads/Matlab801_MacUnix.iso ~/Matlab

If that works, then you should be able to run:

cd ~/Matlab

And install it...that of which someone else will have to help you, or you Google it, because I don't use Matlab.
