I have gone through all of the steps for downloading a trial version of the PGI workstation on Mac OS X but can’t seem to overcome the final hurdle of testing the temporary license and starting PGI.
Part of the confusion is that I am new to Mac, thought I was installing a student trial of visual fortran on Mac when really it was the workstation (visual studio not available for Mac), have tried using vmware fusion w/ win. xp on the mac to use the student trial of visual fortran but ran into an error with 64 vs. 32-bit compiler. Basically, I’m in an installation nightmare that is probably self-induced, although I have a couple of tips for the PG group if they are interested in making their software download a bit more of an enjoyable experience. All this to say that I am trying to keep my cool and determined to figure out what isn’t working.
Here is what I have done.
Following the installation instructions:
% setenv PGI /opt/pgi % set path=(/opt/pgi/osx86-64/8.0/bin $path) % setenv MANPATH "$MANPATH":/opt/pgi/osx86-64/8.0/man % setenv LM_LICENSE_FILE \ “$LM_LICENSE_FILE":/opt/pgi/license.dat
I get the following error <Unmatched ".>
I tried this before and thought it worked, but I may have just missed this error.
The set path command seems to have worked.
% echo $PATH
Next, if I just keep on plugging away and try
%pgf77 -V x.f
[echidna:~] rmueller% pgf77 -V x.f pgf77 8.0-3 64-bit target on Apple OS/X Copyright 1989-2000, The Portland Group, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Copyright 2000-2008, STMicroelectronics, Inc. All Rights Reserved. NOTE: your trial license will expire in 14 days, 7.03 hours. PGFTN/x86-64 OSX 8.0-3 Copyright 1989-2000, The Portland Group, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Copyright 2000-2008, STMicroelectronics, Inc. All Rights Reserved. PGFTN-F-0002-Unable to open source input file: x.f [echidna:~] rmueller%
Which seems good, right?
My license looks okay, except the first line is
SERVER ANY ANY
The “ANY ANY” part seems bothersome. Should I change this? My hostID does show up, but it’s in the fourth line from bottom.
I don’t have to start the license manager deamon because this is a trial, so I go to step 7 in the installation instructions: “Review documentation”
What seems to be missing, however, is a simple statement that says “open ______ to run PGI visual fortran”
Isn’t there a GUI interface somewhere that will help me view, modify, compile code, or am I seriously mistaken regarding what the PGI compiler offers???
I need someone to throw me a bone here.
