Hi,

I tried to install the PGI compiler on my Ubuntu system but there seems to be a problem:
During the installation of the files the following error pops up:

Installing software into /usr/local/pgi (this may take some time).
#############################

ERROR: Linker : not found

Making symbolic links in /usr/local/pgi/linux86/7.2

Does anybody know how to solve this problem?
Thanks.

Hi andreasm,

You need to install the 'build-essential' package before installing the PGI compilers. This package will include things such as your linker and other tools, as well as system header files and development libraries. You might also want to update your system before installing the 'build-essential' package.
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential


The following two packages are also required if you wish to create 32-bit applications on a 64-bit system.
Code:
sudo apt-get install libc6-dev-i386
sudo apt-get install gcc-multilib


Hope this helps,
Mat

mkcolg,

this worked for me - thank you very much. Can you please advise what the best way is to start the license manager at boot time for a Ubuntu system?
Thank's in advance.

Hi andreasm,

I'm not a system's admin, but I think all you need to do is to add the command '<full path>/lmgrd.rc start' to your /etc/rc.local file.
