Hello,
i am face problem when installing matlab on fedora14.
## installing as root user
i am getting the following error

^F               Warning: Permission Problem With MATLAB Files!
^F   ------------------------------------------------------------------------
^F   | Checked some files in your MATLAB root directory. These are bad:     |
^F
^F     -rwxr-xr-x. (not world readable)  - ./bin/scripts/matlab
^F      -rw-r--r--. (not world readable)   - ./toolbox/matlab/general/diary.m
^F
^F   | If you continue with this installation parts of MATLAB may be        |
^F   | inaccessible to the general user after installation. If this is      |
^F   | acceptable for security reasons then continue. Otherwise, you        |
^F   | SHOULD STOP and start all over and extract the files again being     |
^F   | sure that you CORRECTLY set your user file-creation mask with the    |
^F   | 'umask' command BEFORE you extract the files. The argument to the    |
^F   | 'umask' command SHOULD end in 2. For example,                        |
^F   |                                                                      |
^F   |                 # umask 2                                            |
^F   |                                                                      |
^F   | will preserve the read and execute permissions for world. You        |
^F   | should extract the files again using the same userid as was          |
^F   | orginally done so that deleting the existing files is optional.      |
^F   ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Commented:
R14 is quite old version, it was released back in 2004. I don't think you can do anything, but install old gcc version. Probably from here: http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gcc/gcc-3.3.1/
May be you would better to look for a newer MATLAB version? Is there any specific reason to use the old one?
