Maple 10 and glibc installation woes


Okay, so here's my problem. I recently purchased the Linux x86_64 version of Maple 10 to use with my college work. All I was given was a binary installer, LinuxX86_64Installer.bin . Now, when I run this installer as root, it becomes clear that it is also some kind of self-extracting archive, as it creates temporary folders in /tmp which contain compressed archives.

First it gives me a message saying that it is extracting the Java Runtime Environment, then it says it is "configuring for my environment" and complains that a lot of files are missing. Then it says "Installing" and complains one final time about another file being missing. All these files seem to be components of glibc.

According to yum, I have glibc.i686 and glibc.x86_64 both installed. Why can't maple see them? I hesitate to go to Maplesoft for help because my computer is running Fedora Core 5 x86_64, and they only officially support RHEL, Suse and Mandriva. Do these distributins put their glibc someplace else I could symlink to?

The actual output is below:


[root@localhost patrick]# ./LinuxX86_64Installer.bin

I have exactly the same problem. It worked under fedora but doesn't seem to under mandriva!! Have you sorted the problem yet?

I've had this problem as well, although it was a while ago. The problem is fairly generic and is related to the JRE more than the installer so it affects a lot of programs, not just Maple. Googling for the error message produces lots of hits. Here is the first one I got, which seems to have a fix reported to work: http://gallery.menalto.com/node/50926

Good Luck,
James

Ah, many apologies. A hint similar to that one did allow Maple to install (the hint was found on a maple board a while ago). Maple works fine now.
