    Hi:

    I installed g77 version 3.4.3 from Fink along with xcode 2.2.1 for a OS 10.4 system.

    However when I use try to install a program which uses g77 and gcc (version 4.0.1 installed) I get an error message like the following:

    /usr/bin/ld:can't open: /usr/lib/gcc/powerpc-apple-darwin8/4.0.0/libgcc.a (No such file or directory, errno=2)

    I checked online and it turns out that if one installs the version 3.4.4 or greater then the problem is solved. But I installed version 3.4.4 from
    hpc.sourceforge.net according to the directions given there but they don't make any difference.
    ALso I read that gfortran is used rather that g77 for versions of gcc from 4.0.0.

    At this point I am really confused and don't really know what to do.
    ANy inputs would be greatly helpful.

    Thanks
    Vyom

    So you are supposed to use gfortran. What's so difficult about the concept?
