* The listed distributions are those Linux distributions that MathWorks products have been validated against. It is likely that other distributions with kernel version 2.6 or later and glibc version 2.11 or later can successfully run MathWorks products, but MathWorks will be in a limited position to provide technical support for those distributions.
