ERROR: Linker : not found

I just tried to update my pgfortran to 12.5 and when I run the iunstall under Ubuntu 10.04, I get this error:

Installing software into /opt/pgi (this may take some time).

ERROR: Linker : not found

I vaguely remember having similar issues years ago, but not for a while. Any ideas?

Thanks, Jan

Hi Jan,

Have you previously installed the compilers before or is this fresh system?

Ubuntu doesn’t always install development tools by default, so you may need install the “build esstentials” packages (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingEasyHowTo)

sudo apt-get install build-essential checkinstall

You may need to also install the 32-bit compatibility packages:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
sudo apt-get install g++-multilib

Thanks very much. That did the trick.
