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.


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...
