Maya 5.0 on RedHat Linux 9

I am new at this Linux thing and I am trying to find out if I can install Maya 5.0 on linux. If so, how can this be done. I have the installation setup and everything for Windows but now that I have converted I was trying to find out if it would be possible to use the same setup that I used to install in Windows to install in Linux. If this is possible please let me know how I need to do this.

I am in desperate need of assistance, help, please.

Thank You

I'm not sure if it will work, but perhaps you should check out Wine. You can use it to run windows programs. But isn't there a Linux version of Maya?

yea, there is a Linux version supposedly, when I called Alias they said that I can just use the Maya CD so I'm not really sure what to do.

Software tech support really isn't that helpful, is it....
There is a Linux version, but I think it's on a separate CD.
The last time I received a Maya package it contained a CD for Windows, one for Irix, and a few with documentation....there was none for Linux, so I'm wondering if you might need to request it specifically. Or maybe Irix and Linux are on the same disk....I don't have access to those CDs now to check, but just wanted to confirm that there is a Linux installer, and it doesn't require Wine.

Try the manual or you can ask support from maya how to install it...

You can install Maya for Linux on linux, i dont see the point of using wine when theres a native version, defeats the purpose of using linux really.
Add this line to your maya.env file:

code:--------------------------------------------------------------------------------switch ("$OSname")
case Linux:
set lib = lib
set lsFlags = '-l'
setenv LD_ASSUME_KERNEL 2.4.1

Have fun
