Need Assistance : Maya On FreeBSD


hi al

maya’s installation file format which is availableon is in RPM which means “RedHat Package Manager”

the Q is how can I run that RPM on FreeBSD?
any way to make RPM working on FreeBSD?
what about the Linux emulation available in FreeBSD? does it help?

what about Mandrake or SuSe, can i run the RPM?

thanks in advance…

waiting for answers :bounce:


Just install rpm on your freeBSD box, I have used rpm2tgx on slackware before, and you might need to install it with a nodeps (no dependancies) flag, like so

rpm -ivh --nodeps AWCommon.rpm

good luck
