Maya 2024 LookdevX rpm installation

I’m trying to script an installation of Maya 2024 (Rocky 8.8) using the rpms that come with the installer. The LookdevX.rpm file is giving me some trouble: Whether I install it via dnf or rpm it seems to be unable to find a few libraries:

Error: Problem: conflicting requests

Error: Problem: conflicting requests


– nothing provides libAdpSDKWrapper.so()(64bit) needed by LookdevX-1.0.0-2024.el8.x86_64

– nothing provides libOpenMaya.so()(64bit) needed by LookdevX-1.0.0-2024.el8.x86_64

– nothing provides libOpenMayaRender.so()(64bit) needed by LookdevX-1.0.0-2024.el8.x86_64

– nothing provides libOpenMayaUI.so()(64bit) needed by LookdevX-1.0.0-2024.el8.x86_64

– nothing provides libaic_1_2.so()(64bit) needed by LookdevX-1.0.0-2024.el8.x86_64

– nothing provides libufe_4.so()(64bit) needed by LookdevX-1.0.0-2024.el8.x86_64

(try to add ‘–skip-broken’ to skip uninstallable packages or ‘–nobest’ to use not only best candidate packages)
        

Some digging reveals that these libraries are located at /usr/autodesk/maya2024/lib and /usr/autodesk/arnold/maya2024/bin. After adding these directories to /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ they can found by the linker (verified with ldconfig -p), but the dnf/rpm installation still fails. This seems like a bug of some sort. Has anybody else run into this? Do I need to rebuild the rpmfile myself?

      Yes it’s working fine so far though I haven’t tested it much yet
      When installing 2024.1, I ran into additional issues with the debug files provided by the MayaUSD rpm conflicting. To fix these, I rebuilt it with %define _build_id_links none added to the specfile and removed all the lines about /usr/lib/.build-id.
      Again it feels like I’m doing something wrong, but I guess Autodesk just provides rpmfiles that aren’t tested with dnf?
