see http://www.alias.com/eng/support/maya/knowledgebase/systems/3042.jhtml

that says:

Solution:

The work around for this error message is to use the environment variable
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL.

Open a terminal window and type the following 2 commands:

For Bash shell users:
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1

For C shell users:
setenv LD_ASSUME_KERNEL 2.4.1

maya

Also, you can add it to the maya5.0 startup script in /usr/aw/maya5.0/bin
directory after the line:

For Bash shell users:
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1

For C shell users:
setenv LD_ASSUME_KERNEL 2.4.1

before the set maya_exec = maya.bin line

You need to add:
setenv LD_ASSUME_KERNEL '2.4.1'
to /usr/aw/maya4.5/bin/maya file on the Case Linux.

I had the exact same problem in Maya 5 and this fixed everything. Thanks.

Re: GFX: Alias|Wavefront Maya 4 RedHat 9.0

you need to add this to the maya script /usr/local/bin/maya under "case Linux:"
before:

case Linux:
set lib = lib
set lsFlags = '-l'
breaksw

after :

case Linux:
set lib = lib
set lsFlags = '-l'
setenv LD_ASSUME_KERNEL 2.4.1
breaksw

to install maya 4.5 on other distros than rh

zero's picture

You have to extract the files from the libstdc++ rpm package (from the RedHat version it was designed to run; -RH 7.3 for maya 4.5-)

and place it under the lib directory from maya (copy the libraries in it to Maya's library directory). No need for a specific version of openmotif, but you DO need tcsh.

download the correct glibc version but before that check the alias wave front site for compatible glib version. also update openmotif. this should correct the errors - Nilesh

I have a problem trying to run alien against the maya 4.5 rpm

packages:

it says unknown package name. my woody debain destribution doesnt recongnize the rpm file extension, they dont show up in the file names. I installed 4.0 last year following the article with no problem. so whats my problem on 4.5?

Re: GFX: Alias|Wavefront Maya 4

Anonymous's picture

Just copy the rpms to your HD, extend filenames with '.rpm' manually and alien should work ;-)

But I got another problem:

When I'm trying to start maya (installed on my woody system) it just says:

/usr/aw/maya4.5/bin/maya.bin: relocation error: /usr/aw/maya4.5/lib/libTranslators.so: undefined symbol: __dynamic_cast_2

and that's it.

Any ideas???

Very helpful article, for many reasons. Thank you.

An explanation of the following would be much appreciated:

"When I tried launching Maya it terminated, unable to find its shared libraries. Hess quickly set it right, ``It's possible that the libraries are installed, but the necessary symlinks to let ldconfig find them are not installed.'' He suggested manually running ldconfig, which did the trick. Besides running ldconfig -v /usr/aw/maya4.0/lib, I also added that directory name to my /etc/ld.so.conf file."

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
