Running a Matlab script threw this error:
Invalid MEX-file '/home/joe/do_work.mexa64':/usr/local/matlabR2014b/bin/glnxa64/../../sys/os/glnxa64/libstdc++.so.6: version 'GLIBCXX_3.4.19' not found (required by /home/joe/do_work.mexa64).
This error is surprising since
do_work.mexa64 was built using Matlab using the same system and same environment settings.
There is a difference in the glib version between the compiled and running environment. When the
do_work.mexa64 was built, the
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ was used since it was first in
LD_LIBRARY_PATH. However, when the script is run by Matlab, it picks up its own
libstdc++.so.6 file as explained here!
A simple solution to this problem is to remove or rename the Matlab version of
libstdc++.so.6, so that it is not picked up.
