Re: [R] R linux install: FORTRAN compiling error

Thanks for your replies.

I understand you think the best solution is to find the gfortran and possibly libgfortran packages from the version of my Linux and gcc distribution which according to a quick check is the following (also this is a 64 bit linux machine):

gcc (GCC) 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-48) Copyright (C) 2006 Free Software Foundation, Inc. This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO warranty; not even for MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

The question is do you know where I can find a free gfortran package from this distribution and would I need to completely reinstall the gcc package from that version that includes gfortran and other compilers or can I simply add gfortran to my existing packages?
