installation of portability package errors

I get an error when trying to install the portability package on a linux box. The portability package I downloaded is


When I run the install script, I get the following error:

ERROR: unknown glibc version (2.8).

I am running Fedora (

I installed the standard development packages when I installed fc9.

Any ideas? I installed the trial version of the compiler on another machine running the same version of linux and it is running fine.

Thanks for your help.

Hi jbogle,

Since 7.0 was released before Fedora 9, the installer does not recognize the glibc version. You can work around the problem by adding a case for glibc 2.8 at line 184 of the “install” script by copying the case for 2.5.

Note that PGI release 7.0 has not been tested on Fedora 9 so is not an officially supported configuration.
