Question Maple 9.01 installation under Gentoo


Hi everyone!
I finally got Gentoo up and running - and am quite happy with it...
But when I was still using suse installing Maple was no big deal. Now I run into some problems:
There is a shell script to start the installation:
./installMapleLinuxSU
bash: ./installMapleLinuxSU: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied

Which seems to be rather a general permission problem (?)

As a workaround I siply used:
sh ./installMapleLinuxSU
./LinuxInstaller.bin: line 1: /mnt/cdrom/Linux/Linux/resource/jre/bin/java: Permission denied

(Maple comes with it's own Java-vm)

I also tried to copy everything to hd, but I also get the same errors - also being root does not change anything either.

Thank you - Frederik

Gentoo with
Kernel 2.6.5-r1

oops - I just solved it - reading my own stuff...
For those of you interested... I used my own java-vm

sh ./installMapleLinuxSU LAX_VM /opt/blackdown-jre-1.4.1/bin/java

I still wonder about why I had to invoke the shell script with sh ./script instead of just script...

This is a brilliant example how important it is to share yor knowledge with others even though you solve it on your own.

I was eventually able to install Maple 9 on my Mandrake 10.1 with a slightly modified command:

sh ./installMapleLinuxSU LAX_VM /usr/lib/jdk-1.4.2_05/jre/bin/java

Many thanks Frederik!

Did not work

I tried using the command line from the previous post but when I try to start xmaple it dies right away without even so much as a splash screen. I am using jdk1.5.0_01. I can run maple in command line mode.

Any ideas?

Frederik and Track,
You are RIGHT ON! I installed Maple 9 on my new Mandrake 10.1 with a slight variation on y'alls
instructions. Had to download and install J2RE first though. Installation went smooth. I can run command line and "maple -cw" gets me the classic worksheet interface. But when trying xmaple, I have the same problem as eyrardurgur. Any help would be, um, helpful.

Carl

Maple Linux Java etc.

First I had a problem with Maple9 for linux installation. While running installation script I received an error message:
Error of VM initialization
java.lang.NullPointerException

It was solved by specifying a path to jre:
./installMapleLinuxSU LAX_VM /usr/lib/jre1.4.2_02/bin/java

Then I had a problem of xmaple running which was almost like eyrardurgur described above. After typing ./xmaple nothing had happened.
Then I have realized that it was the problem of Java Runtime Enviroment included in Maple 9. It doesn't work with glibc2.3.
It was described here
http://lists.adeptscience.co.uk/mug/.../msg_2531.html

Just rename file $MAPLE$/jre.IBM_INTEL_LINUX/bin/java to java.old
and add symbolic link to your own java. In my case it was
mv java java.old
ln -s /usr/lib/jre1.4.2_02/bin/java

Thanx amink
The symbolic link to my J2RE Java did the trick.

The only problem I have is that help is unavailable. I can use help only in 'maple -cw' mode. Maybe I should make more symbolic links but I haven't tried it yet. Anyway I'm glad my post helped forward.

Yeah amink,
I have the exact same issue with the help menu. I had a similar problem when I installed Maple 9 on OSX (I didn't, however, check if help worked in classic mode). I remember thinking that maybe the installation didn't go off right, so I reinstalled and "voila", help appeared!

Got any symbolic links up your sleeve for me?

Thank you, carlbenders,
It will be wonderful if reinstallation helps me but I don't think so. The only sensible symbolic link was just $MAPLE$/jre.IBM_INTEL_LINUX/bin/java -> /usr/lib/jre1.4.2_02/bin/java. I had tried to add more symlinks, for example,
$MAPLE$/jre.IBM_INTEL_LINUX/bin/java_vm -> /usr/lib/jre1.4.2_02/bin/java_vm, but there was no effect. Help menu doesn't work. I have installed another linux system called CRUX 1.3 and set up Maple9 under it. But native Maple9 java machine works there without any problem. That's why help is available under CRUX. But in my original case native java machine doesn't work (Error message: Unable to initialize...; java.lang.NullPointerException). That's why I have to make symlink to another one (additionally installed). In my opinion that new java machine brings out a problem with help menu but I don't know why. It's really strange.

different java version?

I used aminks setup instructions and everything worked fine, also the help.

I am running Mandrake 10.1 and have jdk1.5.0_01 Maybe jet another java version will help you.

Thanks,
eyrardurgur

Thank you, eyrardurgur!
I have downloaded jdk1.5.0_01 and make symlink $MAPLE$/jre.IBM_INTEL_LINUX/bin/java to it. It seems to solve my problem with help menu. Both maple 9 and help are working fine.

Hej hej, I was reading my errors, and then I saw this
Code:
error while loading shared libraries: libpthread.so.0
well, well, so is it because I only compiled my glibc with "nptlonly" ?
