    I have this problem:
    /usr/bin/ld.real: cannot find -lf2c
    So I can not get executable.Last week I wanted to use Intel Fortran compiler and had problems with other program,the removed libf2c.so.(put libf2c.a)

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    1. You should not have removed the shared library (libf2c.so) - it can co-reside with libf2c.a
    2. If some program has a linkage with the shared library, removing it has just broken that application.
    3. As for Intel Fortran compiler - sorry, not experienced with it. I try to stay away from Fortran as much as possible (bad memories from Fortran-IV in engineering school)...
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    gfortran is a good alternative. I've been using it for years, no problems.
    You will need to install gcc package too I think.
    In Linux there has been a change of names for fortran over the years,
    which can be confusing.
