Heads-up/Question about Maple 10 in Leopard

October 30, 2007, 9:10 am

I need to interrupt the stream of retrospective articles to throw out a question/bleg to the audience. I upgraded the Macbook to Mac OS X Leopard yesterday, and now Maple 10 is not working. I’ve always had troubles with Maple 10 crashing on startup — I usually have to force-quit and restart at least twice before it opens and stays open. But now, no amount of that is getting Maple 10 to open. It just tries to open and then does nothing.

This is a serious issue because most of the computer algebra system work I do in my classes is with Maple on the laptop. As you’d probably guess, there’s no mention of any Leopard-related issues in a Google search or on Maplesoft’s website. I have submitted a ticket to their tech support and was reassured that “within 2-4 business days” somebody would get back to me, but I have a feeling that the blogosphere is faster. (And I need a resolution sooner than this weekend.)

So — any Maple 10 users out there having success, or similar problems, running the software under Leopard?
