Personnaly (maybe it's stupid method but it's work) : 1/ I've get a Linux box (with a officila support by MapleSoft, like Fedora or something like that). 2/ I install the Maple on this Linux Box on something like /usr/local/maple-8 You can install or not install flexlm depend what's kind of licensce you have. 3/ If you must install flexlm install it 4/ Make tar cvf maple.tar /usr/local/maple-8 copy this tar file on your freebsd box untar it in /usr/local (or where you want) Modify the file /usr/local/maple-8/bin/maple.system.type [root]$ diff maple.system.type maple.system.type.orig 75c75 < MAPLE_BIN="bin.IBM_INTEL_LINUX" --- > MAPLE_BIN="FAIL" [root]$ Do exactly same thing for flexlm if you need.
