Hi, I want to use Maya 2023 on my computer, I see that it is not compatible with Rocky Linux 9 because it needs libraries that cannot be installed. I have been thinking if it would be possible to downgrade to Rocky linus 8.5 or if I would just have to do a new installation of the system.
The libraries or packages that i need are:
You will find differences in versions of packages, software, desktop (eg gnome is version 3), hardware, and so on. The only way to find out if it will work on your hardware is to try to install and see how the system operates. I cannot say definitively if your hardware will work on 8.
Note that Rocky Linux 8.5 is unsupported. It will have bugs and security issues that are addressed in the current version. Only the latest is supported. If Maya is locked to a specific version of Rocky, I would request them to support a newer version of Rocky Linux.
I would like to add to this thread,
Maya 2023.3 does support Rocky 8.7, the problem that I had was from a libmd.so file which was installed from an add-on for Gnome, this was not part of Rocky or RHEL, I tested Maya 2023.3 on a VM of Rocky 8.7 and once all it’s dep were installed it ran perfectly.
