Huh? I Don't get this. What I mean by porting is taking the basic framework
and subjects from the max tutorial and create pd specifics for it. What
point would it be for me to install max?

That's interesting, 40+ students have a non-optional course here, ofcourse
not everybody benefits to the same extent of the tutorials, just like with
any school material. So why does it fail in your case? If we can find out
