Description of problem:
Would it be possible to have a compat-gcc32-g77 package produced for RHEL4 similar to the g++ one ?
I have a number of apps that work fine on RHEL 3 but won't compile under RHEL4 - I can compile the C/C++ sections using the gcc32 and g++32 commands but the fortran components fail.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Can you expand why you can't use g77 for the Fortran parts and compat-gcc-32
C/C++ compilers for the C resp. C++ parts (or even also gcc for the C parts)?
To my knowledge there weren't big Fortran frontend changes between GCC 3.2-RH
and 3.4-RH. If this is because GCC 3.4-RH bugs, then they ought to be fixed
once they are reported as such.
There are already far too many compilers in RHEL4, so the answer will be most
probably no, unless you present a compelling reason.
If you come up with good rationale, please reopen.
