what distribution of linux?
I run fedora core 1, and the packages that you need are
called "gcc" and "gcc-g77", both of which must be installed.
That will be the case for any Redhat-like distribution.
Talking to the primary author, I learned g95 does NOT have
optimization enabled, and will not for at least a few months. Work
will start when the gcc crew finishes standardizing on a new internal
G95's current performance is not anywhere near competitive with
commercial F95 compilers, as a result. It is unclear what its future
performance will be once optimization works, but I would guess it
to equal or slightly better NAG's and trail Intel's.
