Re: [Condor-users] condor_compile with dynamic linking ?

Thought I'd report that DMTCP checkpointing seems to work
fine with standalone MATLAB executables although seemingly
not with the MATLAB interpreter (Debian 5/Matlab R2011b). 
Would be nice to be able to run these under standard universe though.
