which kind of installation of FC4 you did? gcc is pretty standard in all distro AFAIK.
anyway, you are using an rpm based distro. if you don't have gcc installed, grab the gcc rpm in some fedora repo and install it with yum or by hand if you prefer.
Yes, I thought gcc would be standard
but however typing g77 says the command is not present
I got this fedora 4 linux from that book "sams teach yourself red hat fedora 4 linux". it says "full version of fedora core 4" but yeah, I doubt its a full package considering I only paid $20 for the book w/ the cd.
ok, so I know yum is some kind of updating command
but is there a specific command for me to update to get GCC or does it just give me the full package of Fedora.
you paid 20 bucks for the book. fedora is free.
sorry but now we are getting into the specifics of FC4. Unknown land for me.
but, i think you can always try installing with the old rpm -i and see what happens. it will check the dependencies for you.
you just need to get a safe rpm and try installing it by hand.
hope it helps you..

you are in one of the best available... LQ rocks!
check here. disclaimer. what i write now is only mho.
rpms give the root password for someone that you never met! so, getting an rpm from somewhere that you never heard of can be pretty bad. end of disclaimer.
another thing is: FC4 is using gcc4 by default. this is pretty new. i think FC is the first distro to do that. this can mess a bit if you get packages from different sources.
g77 is a separate package from gcc, but it does use some of the common elements. FC4 uses yum to automate package installation. What this means it that you give it a package to install and then it will locate and install all the required packages plus the one you really want. You can learn more about yum at the Fedora site. Here is the direct link to Managing Software with yum.
this is under the same question
so i have this code written in fortran tested on the VMS system
gcc from the website above seem to support VMS system
but how would i compile telling the g77 compiler that i want it to use VMS options?
i was not sure about what the hardware models and config options for VMS meant.
