Default Matlab R2008b via linuxulator in FreeBSD, Installation Troubles

I'm trying to install the Linux version of Matlab R2008b on FreeBSD via linuxulator. However, I've run into some trouble:

ninjasb /cdrom [15] sudo /compat/linux/bin/sh install                                    
expr: illegal option -- r
usage: expr [-e] expression
install: line 197: [: -ne: unary operator expected

Error: Your computer processor is missing the SSE2 instructions that
       are required for MATLAB to run correctly.
       For system requirements consult http://www.mathworks.com ...

ninjasb /cdrom [16]
How can I solve this? Something tells me that the cpuinfo implementation in linprocfs.c might be at the root of all this because it might be outdated.

Make sure you use 32 bit version on Matlab on 32 bit bersion of FreeBSD.
I would assume that you followed instructions from the handbook but unfortunately
they are getting obsolete.


Do you use fc4 or higher versions of Linuxinator?
Try to see if the following will help

mount -t linprocfs linproc /usr/compat/linux/proc
I have not used FreeBSD for almost two years now but that is one of the thing
that actually might not even work on newer versions of FreeBSD.

Basically any semi-decent CPU since the Pentium 4 or AMD K8's (e.g. Athlon 64s) should support SSE2. Taking a casual look around, it looks like linprocfs is probably not exporting that flag to cpuinfo as you seem to expect; but then again my system /is/ out dated.

$ dmesg | grep -C 2 Features
