Dear Sophie,

Why use the -i? Who advised you to do this? This simply means ignore errors
but the errors are there for a reason, if you just ignore them you end up
wasting yours and everyone elses time trying to wade through log files to
find out where the original error occured.

Do the following. Download
and save it in your home directory.


patch -p0 -N -r patch_rejects < ~/bugfix.all
cd src
./configure -static ifort_ia32 (assuming this is a 32 bit machine)
make clean
make >& make.log

You can then watch the progress with

tail -f make.log

If it ends with an error take a look at the error and see if you can work
out what it means. Cutting and pasting the error into the search box on can help.

Then if you still can't work it out please post back to the amber list but
this time attach the make.log file so people can see what the error is and
then they might be able to help.

It is also useful to know the version of fedora core. Show the results of:

uname -a
cat /proc/cpuinfo
ifort -V
gcc -v

This can really help with troubleshooting.
All the best
