How is it failing to work ,.... have you tryed launching it from a terminal ?BennyO wrote:I'm using the B+.
Registring at Wolfram does not work either.
The serial number format sent by the blob has changed. The SoC info for the RPi2 is BCM2709, unlike the Pi1. You can use a modified PRoot to bind a modified /proc/cpuinfo, it works(TM).ssteel wrote:I wouldn't like to close this case just yet
I have had the exact same problem occurring on my RPi2. I believe it triggered after I updated my Raspbian January 2015 firmware with rpi-update.
Wolfram in console would work but not Mathematica and I had not messed around with its files.
Purging and reinstalling wolfram-engine, also cleaning /home/pi related conf files did not work.
Only reinstalling again the Raspbian img got everything OK again.
My hunch is that Mathematica license is somehow linked to some machine ID which maybe is changing after modifying kernel files?
PS: contacting Wolfram through the License error message they kindly replied that Mathematica for RPi is supported by raspberrypi.org and to contact them for further info about this issue.

The Wolfram Cloud is available with a free starter account, and has additional non-free accounts which enable additional functionality.
You get what you get. Wolfram spent a lot of time and money producing this software, so you are not going to get it (other than the version of the Pi) for free.richrarobi wrote:I am concerned about hidden costs behind the licensing deal with Wolfram. What do you get access to on Raspberry pi? Do you have access to the full Wolfram cloud system? Or is it a marketing ploy to get thousands of school-kids indoctrinated, and the schools paying the annual fees? What when they leave school?
Are you able to do the things that Wolfram talks about in his video on the Wolfram site without paying through the nose?
Can someone make a clear statement, please? Please.
While I do have dreams about this sort of data being available to everyone through an eye-screen headset (or better) all the time (Some people are already wearing blue-tooth headsets for their phones (aka that Dr Who episode!!)), I find the £15 a month it seems to cost to be prohibitive to even begin to think about using it.
We need all those young up and coming robotics scientists to have full and free access to this sort of technology, so that it can be developed to its full potential.
p.s. The free starter account is extremely limited.The Wolfram Cloud is available with a free starter account, and has additional non-free accounts which enable additional functionality.
