6 views (last 30 days)
Hi to every one,
I had installed Matlab2017b on Ubuntu 14.04 some days ago. When i try to start Matlab Simulink all the program stops to work and shows this error line on the terminal:
*Error in `/usr/local/MATLAB/R2017b/bin/glnxa64/MATLAB': corrupted size vs. prev_size: 0x00007f59e8192ab0*** Segmentation Fault
How can i fix this problem?
Thanks to all.

Hi everyone,
This is believed to caused by a bug in glibc 2.19, the default in Ubuntu 14.04. The upstream bug report can be found below:
The bug can cause sporadic crashes during various actions within MATLAB.
As a workaround, I recommend upgrading Ubuntu versions to a version with glibc 2.21 installed by default, or working with the Ubuntu community to upgrade the glibc version on 14.04 to 2.21 or later.
If you still run into issues after upgrading glibc to 2.21 or later, please contact Technical Support.
