g77 suse10


Hello all
I have just installed Suse 10 (SUSE Linux OSS x86 5 cds). I have installed GCC with yast2 (gcc.4.0.2). However, there is no g77.

I downloaded GCC 4.0.2 from ftp://ftp.ntua.gr/pub/gnu/gcc/releases/gcc-4.0.2/ which incudes gcc-fortran-4.0.2.tar.bz2. I opened the tar archived and contained a source code. Does any know how to install g77?

I will apreciate your help.
PS I m not experienced linux user.

There is a gcc-fortran package for SUSE 10 available. Maybe you need to check online reopsitories (see sticky threads). Another package is called compat-g77 (if it doesn't compile with gcc-fortran).

Thanks for you reply
I have been looking into the Threads. I have found "g77 in gcc 4.1.0 not found only gfortran fortran 95 compiler! I need fortran 77" and understand that gcc-4.... does not include g77 but other fortran versions (fortran95). If I am wrong please correct me. Anyway I need g77!! SO, I ve started downloading gcc-3.4.6 which contains gcc-g77-3.4.6.....
Questions:
1.Could you please confirm that I doing the right think?. As I told you I have installed Suse 10 and gcc with yast2 (gcc.4.0.2).
2. Should I re-install gcc.4.0.2 (with Yast2 I guess?), before install the gcc-3.4.6?
3. The gcc-3.4.6 must be in as a source code format. I should compile it. How? "gcc -", "make install" ? Obviously I am not very experience in linux
4. "rpm" are equivalent of windows "exe"??. Should by using Yast2 be able to install automatically gcc-3.4.6..rpm?
5. Is there any hope to improve my linux skills in future?

Thanks

5: Sure there is!
4: rpm equivalent with windows installer packages. "exe" files are usually called "binary executables". You should always try to use YaST first. Keep in mind that rpm's are often version specific, so you may not be able to install a SUSE 9.1 rpm on a 10.0 system (even if it works and you don't get any dependency conflicts, you may not get functional software).
2/3: I am not an expert when it comes to compilers and compiling. But I am quite sure that you will run into trouble compiling an older version of gcc on your SUSE 10.0 system. I suggest you have a try with those rpm packages first:
ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/distr...901-3.i586.rpm
ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/distr...3.5-2.i586.rpm
1: Maybe you could point out what you need this compiler for. I guess people can help better if they know what you intend to do (probably not me, unfortunately ).

For further support, someone else has to join this thread.

Thanks a lot. I have eventually succeeded to run g77. I firsrly tried to install the "compat-g77-3.3.5-15.src.rpm" and "compat-g77-3.3.5-2.src.rpm" which I downloaded from a site (size:24Mbyte) unsuccesfully (Yast came up with an error).

Then I followed your instructions and installed successfully!! the "gcc-fortran-4.0.2_20050901-3.i586.rpm". But neither "fort77" nor "g77" was there (ie "which fort77" and "which g77" ).

Finally, I installed the "compat-g77-3.3.5-2.i586.rpm" in addition! to the previous one (with Yast again) and then I gould run the g77 and compile my fortran program.

Thanks for one more time
I hope this help to help others
