Problem with mex files

Hi,
I am trying to install Dynare on Linux (Red Hat4, 64-bit, gcc4) for Matlab7.4. According the DynareWiki, after running the function build_matlab.m (to compile the mex file), Matlab exits if compilation is successful. In case of error, Matlab will stop and display the error message. In my case, Matlab does not exist but I don`t get any error.

However when I try to run an example I get the following error message:

Configuring Dynare …
[mex] Generalized QZ.
[mex] Sylvester equation solution.
[mex] Kronecker products.
[mex] Sparse kronecker products.

Stack Trace:

This error was detected while a MEX-file was running. If the MEX-file
is not an official MathWorks function, please examine its source code
for errors. Please consult the External Interfaces Guide for information
on debugging MEX-files.

If it is an official MathWorks function, please
follow these steps to report this problem to The MathWorks so we
have the best chance of correcting it:

The next time MATLAB is launched under typical usage, a dialog box will
open to help you send the error log to The MathWorks. Alternatively, you
can send an e-mail to segv@mathworks.com with the following file attached:
/home/asd/marv/matlab_crash_dump.13194

If the problem is reproducible, please submit a Service Request via:
mathworks.com/support/contac … est_1.html

A technical support engineer might contact you with further information.

Thank you for your help. Save your workspace and restart MATLAB.

Any help on that would be appreciate.

When I run the function build_matlab.m this is the output I get in Matlab:

We had problems trying to fix the code for the DLL to be compatible with Matlab 7.8 (2009).
I made some correction in the snapshot, could you try to see if it fixes your problem?

Matlab doesn’t exit after build_matlab anymore. I will correct the wiki.

Thanks for reporting the problem

Hi,
I am using Matlab 7.4 not 7.8, on a 64 bit machine (linux red hat 4 with gcc4). I will try with the snaphsot.

Thanks!

Hi,

I tried with the snapshot and it still does not work. If I compile the dll with Matlab 7.1 instead of 7.4(64 bit linux machine) using the command build_matlab it seems to work. I would like to use Matlab 7.4.

Hi,

can you post the log of build_matlab with Matlab 7.4? Note that you need to redo build_matlab if you change between Matlab 7.1 and Matlab 7.4

Hi,

I downloaded the snapshot again and everything seems to work fine! I did not run the function build_matlab.m. Do we have to run this function? Not sure if I understand the role of this function.

Also when I compile the preprocessor I get the following warning:

make: warning: Clock skew detected. Your build may be incomplete.

When you compile Dynare, you need to do two different things

  1. compile the preprocessor with make
  2. compile the DLL that Dynare uses to accelerate Matlab with build_matlab

If you don’t do 2), Dynare will work, but will be slower

The clock skew warning means that some of the files that you create during compilation have date/time older than the source they were compiled from. This can come from a difference in the clock between your computer and our web server. I don’t think that it can have adverse consequences for compiling Dynare.

Hi,

Everything works fine if I don’t run the command build_matlab. If I run this command I can’t run any examples. I am using the snapshot with Matlab 7.4 on Linux 64 bit. The error I get is

Stack Trace:

This error was detected while a MEX-file was running. If the MEX-file
is not an official MathWorks function, please examine its source code
for errors. Please consult the External Interfaces Guide for information
on debugging MEX-files.

If it is an official MathWorks function, please
follow these steps to report this problem to The MathWorks so we
have the best chance of correcting it:

The next time MATLAB is launched under typical usage, a dialog box will
open to help you send the error log to The MathWorks. Alternatively, you
can send an e-mail to segv@mathworks.com with the following file attached:
