    Re: HOWTO: Maple

    I get the same error as lucascr mentioned above:

    Code:
    Preparing to install...
    Extracting the JRE from the installer archive...
    Unpacking the JRE...
    Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...

            at com.zerog.lax.LAX.main(DashoA8113)
    Any ideas?

    Edit:

    Found the solution here:

    Code:
    export PS1=">"
    did the trick. Stupidest error ever.

    Re: HOWTO: Maple

    I purchased and downloaded the Maple 10 self-extracting installer from MapleSoft's website, Linux10Installer.bin. I received an error indicating that libc.so.6 couldn't be found. As has been suggested elsewhere, you must comment out the "export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5" lines. In fact, this was all I needed to do. As others have warned, this is tricky because the self-extracting file is easily corrupted by adding or deleting characters because it is a binary file. I used ghex, a hex editor to replace the "e" in export" with a pound sign to give "#xport". Keep a backup copy of your installer script just in case you make a mistake.

    I hope this helps.

    Re: HOWTO: Also works for Millennium Innovation

    Thank you very much for your explanation. We've been hitting the same exact problem trying to install the Millennium Innovation Catalogue software at the Drexel Library. The guy who has been trying to get it installed on some of our linux boxes hasn't been able to get it to work on anything except Mepis and PCos. I tried it on my debian server, and my ubuntu laptop with no luck, and threw it to the back of my mind, as I was just looking at it as a favor. Your instructions, slightly modified, worked wonderfully. Thank you very much.

    Say, thanks a lot! This guide saved my life! I have already wished, I'd better stay by Ubuntu dapper, although feisty is a lot cooler. Thanks again!

    Re: HOWTO: Maple

    I'm getting similar errors trying to install Maple 8. Going to see if this works for me.
    EDIT:

    My file system has different directories and my souce for the Maple files is also a tar file "Maple8_CD.tar" or "Maple9_CD.tar" and so I don't know if this will work or not.

    In another place on the network, I found a Maple10.rar, so I am going to try that to see if it has the same file structure as whats described here.

    EDIT^2:

    The Maple 10 file has the same structure except the file in the /VM/ directory is UnixInstaller.bin I think this is for a network Unix install. I don't think they actually have an LInux version of maple available for students.
