Matlab R2013b/R2014a: BLAS loading error

Matlab R2013b has a known bug where you get the error:

Error using * BLAS loading error: dlopen: cannot load any more object with static TLS

This is noted in Mathworks Bug 961964 where it’s noted that the problem exists in R2012b, R2013a, R2013b, and R2014a.

That bug report (requires login to Mathworks) will give you a .zip file, that at the time I downloaded, contained dated Jan 30, 2014.

This file goes into /usr/local/MATLAB/R2014a/sys/os/glnxa64/ – don’t forget to backup your original before replacing it!

Separately, in R2013b and R2014a, I have noticed


occasionally popping up in the Matlab command window. I have read in the forums that this is Java 7’s fault, and that disabling horizontal mouse scroll stops the MEvent.Case! message – which it does, but it also disables horizontal mouse scroll for all software.
