Autodesk maya on FreeBSD 8.2

Postby rockworldmi » 23 Sep 2011, 10:39

Hello folks ..I am trying to install Autodesk Maya 2011 on FreeBSD 8.2. I have tried using all the methods in the Handbook. Also tried with alien but it was unable to convert [FILE].rpm[/FILE] to [FILE].tgz[/FILE]. Please let me know if anybody has done this successfully.

And this is the link for maya setup: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=15770983&linkID=9242259

[FILE].tgz[/FILE] contains all the [FILE]rpm[/FILE] needed for Maya 2011x64.

Have a look at at tool called rpm2cpio (in ports). You should be able to extract it from the .rpm quite easily.

There are a few rpm programs in the ports collection, but AFAIK none of them are for the linux compat.

Can you please keep me updated if you manage to get Maya working? I may have to do the same in the near future and it would be great if I can get some tips off you.
