I am not so deep into linux but maybe it's cos you have 64bit CPU and the program does not support
64 bit or is not fully compatible ? Cos i think this program uses a lot of extra registers from cpu and
maybe some specififc Mnemonic Assembler Code which crashes the app ? Have you tryed to look at
alias homepage if the version supports 64bit ?

Only thinking not advicing......

According to below, your FC5 x86_64 isn't supported. You're probably better off running FC5 x32.

http://www.alias.com/eng/support/maya/qualified_hardware/QUAL/maya_70_linux.html

Otherwise, I'd chase up Autodesk and find out whether they'll support you.. You may want to make sure that you have the necessary 32-bit libraries on your system.

Also, you might wanna try 'linux32 maya -d gdb' and see whether that works.. if not, it depends on how desperately you need/want to run Maya and maybe re-install in FC5 i386 according to their support page...
