    Default Maple 10 installation missing libraries under openSuSE 11.1

    Here is the output from the installer:

    Looked for these under the usual repos but did not find any.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    All of those files are included in the glibc package, which means they ARE installed. The current version (in the 11.1-update repo) is 2.9-2.11.1.

    You can see for yourself by doing:

    Code:
    zypper wp libc.so.6
    Replace libc.so.6 for the other libraries as well. In all cases you should see an entry looking something like this:

    Code:
    i | glibc       | package | 2.9-2.11.1 | x86_64 | openSUSE-11.1-Update
    What may be wrong is that you may be using the wrong architecture of Maple. That is, you may try to install the 32bit version of Maple on a 64-bit system or the other way around. If Maple 10 is even available for both 32-bit and 64-bit. I know Maple 12 is, since that's what I'm using but I'm not sure about earlier versions.

    IF you're using a 64-bit install of Suse and is trying to use a 32-bit version, either download the correct version (available for all licensed users) OR install the 32-bit version glibc and see if that helps.

    SauronXXX:

    Thanks for your reply. Looks like I was doing something wrong but someone pointed me to the following website where a workaround is given.

    I tried that, and indeed I went through that error only to encounter another one. This time, it looked as if some .Z file was not in gzip format. Here is the output from the install command.

    Code:
    Preparing to install...
    Extracting the JRE from the installer archive...
    Unpacking the JRE...
    
    gzip: /tmp/install.dir.6146/Linux/resource/vm.tar.Z: not in gzip format
    
    gzip: /tmp/install.dir.6146/Linux/resource/vm.tar.Z: not in gzip format
    
    gzip: /tmp/install.dir.6146/Linux/resource/vm.tar.Z: not in gzip format
    The included VM could not be uncompressed (GZIP/UNCOMPRESS). Please try to
    download the installer again and make sure that you download using 'binary'
    mode.  Please do not attempt to install this currently downloaded copy.

    Ok, I manage to install Maple 10 "successfully". The command line version works just fine, but the windows (I guess java-based) version fails. I start it from the command line and just get the prompt back.

    Code:
    weinstei@ron:/usr/maple10/bin> ./xmaple
    weinstei@ron:/usr/maple10/bin>
    No clue where to look next...

    Update:

    Looking for clues as to what is going on, I ran the offending command /usr/maple10/bin/maple -x and got the prompt back. Looked in /var/log/messages and nothing is there. How can you launch an app, and have it fail without any messages? If it was a java crash wouldn't I get an error?

    Found a partial solution on the mapleprimes website. Turns out all that was needed was to install an older version of libstdc++. By default only libstdc++43 is installed, but libstdc++33 is also available in YaST, so I installed it and xmaple works.
