Question: solving Ax=b, where A contains one symbol in MAPLE 18

Dear Maple users,

I am solving a system of linear equations Ax=b where A is a matrix (243*241) which contains a rational polynomial of unknown "kappa" along with floating numbers. As suggested in some other posts I am using Linear algebra package with the LinearSolve command and option "solve" to find out unknown vector x. b is a vector having entries zero and 1. The system is such that two equations are redundant but it is difficult to recognise which two are redundant and hence for the time being I am keeping them in the matrix. (For a known value of kappa (say kappa=2) I have checked that two equations are redundant.) For the reference, the matrix and the right-hand vector b is attached as text.

There are two issues

1) Maple takes very long time (12 hours and so) to get x=b\A;

2) The result is a long expression i.e.  x[i] is a rational polynomial in kappa; a very long rational polynomial which I am importing as a text. I am not sure if maple exports all terms in the polynomial as for the different value of kappa I see Ax-b >0. 

How can I overcome this problem? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
