Hello,

I provide technical support for the Economics Department at a large public university. I had a faculty member request Dynare, which I installed for him yesterday. When he tries to use the software, he receives the following feedback:

[code]>> dynare structuralNews4April2012_Est

Configuring Dynare …

[mex] Generalized QZ.

[mex] Sylvester equation solution.

[mex] Kronecker products.

[mex] Sparse kronecker products.

[mex] Bytecode evaluation.

[mex] k-order perturbation solver.

[mex] k-order solution simulation.

/installers/dynare-4.2.5/matlab/dynare_m: /usr/bin/matlab/sys/os/glnxa64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.11’ not found (required by /installers/dynare-4.2.5/matlab/dynare_m)

??? Error using ==> dynare at 114

DYNARE: preprocessing failed[/code]

I’ve done a little looking with google, and apparently MATLAB ships with its own libraries which can conflict with the system’s. I am hesitant to remove or rename the MATLAB libraries as this is a shared machine which is used by numerous people in our department. The system runs Mandriva Linux 2010.2 x64.

Any advice on how to solve this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
