    Question how to install maya 2008 in opensuse 11?

    i use opensuse 11 and i have autodesk maya2008 package which contains some rpm files like:

    1)aksusbd-redhat-i386.rpm
    2)aksusbd-suse-i386.rpm
    3)awcommon-i686.rpm
    4)awcommon-serveri686.rpm
    5)maya2008-i686.rpm
    6)maya2008docs-i686.rpm

    when i execute the maya2008 rpm file..it doesn't install with yast.. but opens
    itself in the archive manager...how to install automatically via yast?

    As root try the following:

    1. Go to the directory in which you've downloaded the .rpm files.
    2. zypper install *.rpm
    The '*' means here, all the .rpm in single. This means the amount executions of the zypper as the number of downloaded rpm files.

    The advantage of using zypper is that dependent rpm packages also get installed. :-)

    Good luck.

    Hi i'm a little bit disappointed because your solution doesn't work for me..

    i've got message like : not a valid rpm-file or with your zypper method : uri malformed, what does that mean? what did i do wrong?.
    Perhaps i misunderstood?
    I've got opensuse kde3 or gnome (depends on what I need to do) opensuse 11.0 x64 and an dvd of maya 2008_X64 for linux that doesn't work...

    Hi
    Try the rpm method then, just change to the directory where the rpm
    files are and run;
    Code:
    sudo rpm -Uhv <name_of_the_rpm_you_wish_to_install>
