Removing obsolete PGI Fortran compilers

I need to do a little cleanup on the drive containing my PGI compiler. I’ve got versions 10.x and 2010. What’s the safest way to accomplish this?

I’m using the linux86-64 version.

Can I just do an rm on the directories within the linux86 and linux86-64 directories like this:

rm -r 10.*
rm -r 2010


BTW, unpacking the 11.6 tar file gave this:

tar xpfz pgilinux-116.tar.gz

gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Looks like a problem. Is it?



Hi Tom,

Yes, you can simply use rm to remove old releases.

I suspect your package is corrupt. What’s the MD5sum? It should be: 24f4f448ea1c091e18a94b140e8d660f

Checksum didn’t check out. Downloaded it again, and the install worked.
