Gfortran - still struggle


Hi there,

I have posted on the issue before. It seems I have made some progress. When I tried to use this command:

Quote:
sudo apt-get install gfortran
I would get an error message that I did not have a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) and therefore the qmail could not get installed. I finally added my registered domain name to the host name in the hostname file:

Quote:
alexb-VirtualBox
It now looks like this (my FQDN in /etc/hostname):

Quote:
alexb-VirtualBox.my_lastName.org
The system went through motions, verifying the IP address I believe and finally accepted it. However it calls it differently: Fully Qualified Host name.

Then the qmail seemed to have been installed and gfortran as well.

However when I enter either gfortran/Gfortran/fortran or qmail in the search window I get nothing. Why?

Please help. Thanks.

Which search window are you referring to?

You can confirm if they are installed from the output of the following command.
Code:
dpkg -l qmail gfortran

Thank you evo2. I have already resolved all issues. GFortran is there and it is working.
