After these are all installed run the include files need to be "adjusted" to GCC requirements. Do this by running the following command:

  • I have a newer version of gcc, with gfortran included. I needed this build in order to build R for AIX.
  • I am leaving it in "test" (see http://download.aixtools.net/test/) because the name of the package is not correct (aixtools.obj.gcc rather than aixtools.gnu.gcc). There are more things - than just the name - that I want to clean up before there is a new "official" packaging.

  • I have been using my first packaging (Nov 2014) with success - when absolutely needed. I still prefer using IBM C compiler for easier lack of additional dependencies for 1) gcc and 2) the extra GNU libraries that get included as a dependency while they may not be needed.

I am currently 'rebuilding' (see above) gcc because I need fortran for a certain package (and I have never had IBM Fortran).


While AIXTOOLS is provided - ASIS - I am willing to assist as best I can.

If you use my packaging, and have questions or need assistance - please post on the forums at http://forums.rootvg.net/aixtools. I shall respond as soon as I am able to.
