I've been administrating a Mentor Graphics class for a short period, unfortunately I'm not the one who installed and configured everything in the beginning, so I might be incompetent in some aspects. The problem is quite strange: we have a server machine with the installed license and 15 client computers running Windows (for Expedition PCB and other) and Linux RedHat Enterprise 5.7 (Pyxis_SPT and Calibre). Expedition PCB and all the other windows products are working on all the computers including the server, no license problems occur. When we switch to Linux, Pyxis_SPT works only on 13 of the 15 client computers. All the computers are linked to one network via a switch, are in the same IP range and etc. On the two computers Pyxis Project Navigator opens, but when Pyxis Schematic (or Layout) is invoked it crashes right away. The log file from Pyxis:
// Pyxis Schematic v10.1_0.0 Mon Jan 23 08:51:39 PST 2012

All the environment variables are set and do not differ from the ones set on the working computers. The license seems to be working and it is available on all the computers. Here is the mgls_ok command output on the computer where Pyxis isn't working (license is granted for icarch and pyxschematic_c):
$ mgls_ok -pd 1997.07 icarch
Checking availability of "icarch".
License granted through "pyxschematic_c".
And here is part of the lmstat -a command output:

Almost forgot to mention: the MGLS_DEBUG_LOG is the same for the working and non-working computers.
If anyone has any suggestions or advice, please comment. I can send any other logs or info if needed.
P.S. I know we are using outdated license software, but we would like to keep it that way for now (if possible).
P.S. Also sorry for my English.
