Hi all,
I put the maple 11 cd into the drive, click on the install executable icon, and installation starts -so far so good. The window pops up with the maple icons, where it goes through the process of introduction, licensing, choosing folder, etc.

At the installation stage the bar starts filling up until it says:

Installing... Install from Manifest: lib.manifest

and then it just stops. Every time. (I've tried it at least a dozen times.) I can hear that the cd drive has stopped turning at this point too, but no matter how long I wait nothing happens, and eventually I just force quit.

I'm running ubuntu Hardy (8.04) on a HP tx1100 pavillion laptop.
anybody have any ideas?
thanks in advance.
