crtbegin.o error again


I have search the forum and found topics related to this problem.
I check localrc file in both 32&64 version of pgi
They both have correct path with Fedora Core 4 (with compat-gcc-32-g77-3.2.3-47.fc4).
However, no matter which PGI(32 or 64) compiler(latest 6.0.4) I choose,
crtbegin.o error happend all the time.

Any suggestions?

Hi Danish,

Fedora Core 4 is very new and thus not yet supported. The error your seeing is due to the install script not recognizing FC4. We do have a patch for the installer so it will install properly, however, we have not yet validated FC4 and don’t officially support it yet. In general with new OS’s, Fortran just works, C might have problems, and C++ does have problems due to changes to the OS’s template libraries. I don’t know if this is the case here, but something to keep in mind.

If you’d like to get the FC4 patch, please send a email to Once we have validated FC4, we will post this patch for general download.


Hi mkcolg,

Due to hardware problems (MB is also very new), we don’t have choice.
Fedora Core 4 x86_64 is only OS work perfectly with ATI RS480 chips
(Good choice if you plan to build new cluster, this chip builts in with everything include VGA).
I have tried Core 3 but trouble with SerialATA.
If patch only works with fortran, is MPI installed sucessfully only with fortran?

Anyway, thanks for your quick reply.
