We have: HP 712, HPUX 9 with Patch PHKL_6075 & Mathematica V2. Paid for upgrade to V3 + CD-ROM. Unfortunately V3 requires HPUX 10, which in turn is very hoggish: I am advised we need at least double our present RAM + disk space & so forth. So I tried to install on HPUX9 & failed. The problem first met is that as mounted, the files on the CD all have names in uppercase, e.g: UNIX/INSTALLERS/HP-RISC/MATHINSTALLER but this file refers to other files on the CD by names with initial caps, thus: reloc=../../Files/SystemFiles/Installation cd $reloc SystemResources/Utilities/Mathinstaller $* (extracts, snipped). Several other command scripts on the CD do the same. I tried using the patch to change filenames, but the only option provided is to map filenames to all lower case which doesnt solve the problem. I am very reluctant to spend 500 pounds or so to upgrade our H-ware for HPUX 10 if we still cant run Math. V3 on it. Please has anybody successfully installed it on HPUX 10.20 as received on the free CD from HP ? Do the files on the CD really have initial-capital names like Unix/Installers/Hp-Risc/Mathinstaller If so, is it a bug in PHKL_6075 that I cannot see the filenames in their correct case ?
