Running Docker image with Matlab on a Mac

20 views (last 30 days)
We have been trying to dockerize some of our Matlab workflows, which has worked perfectly fine. However, we are running into problems when we try to run the same docker image on a Mac computer. Upon launching matlab, we get the following error:
% root@0488926e7766:/workdir# matlab
% MATLAB is selecting SOFTWARE OPENGL rendering.
% Fatal Internal Error: std::exception: uint64_t foundation::core::system::linux::x86_64::getMaximumProcessorFrequencyImpl(): Numerical result out of range
Poking around the output of lspcu, presumably the problem is related to the CPU MHz value, which is reported as being 0.000:

The problem has been replicated on systems running High Sierra and Mojave.
Is this a known issue and/or is there a workaround?

This problem resolved itself by compiling my Matlab code with a newer version of Matlab (2022b instead of 2017b)
