I would like to install a software called COMSOL on Redhat (Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.4 (Santiago)) cluster. COMSOL is designed as a Windows software, and its installation requires X window call-out from linux command.

After mounting the installation file, command

sh setup

is supposed to call out the X window for installation. However, I'm having Java related errors running the above command. The error messages are at the end of this post as they take too much space. Do you have any suggestions for me to deal with this? Thanks a lot!

error messages:

Removing temporary COMSOL installer components...
  • Our cluster supporter helped solve the problem. Actually it is simple, even stupid. I was using MobaXterm terminal software, which could call out X wiindows from clusters I used previously. However this time it fails to call out the X window from our cluster. After changing to Xmanager, it is straightforward to get the graphical window and finish the installation. – Pu Zhang Sep 25 '15 at 9:42
