Installing Open64

Introduction

Open64 compilers supports i386, x86_64 and IA-64. This compiler is available in both binary and source-code form for  different target machines. The file of the package is made up by 5 parts: open64-<version>-<release>.<target>.<package type>

open64-<version>-<release>.src.tar.bz2  

This package contains the compiler's source code. It's machine independent.

open64-<version>-<release>.ia64.tar.bz2, open64-<version>-<release>.ia64.rpm  

These two packages contain all the binary files including the compiler components and libraries for IA-64 machine. The compiler is built on a mainstream IA-64 Linux distribution. The libraries are built on the same system by this compiler. 

open64-<version>-<release>.x86_64.tar.bz2, open64-<version>-<release>.x86_64.rpm   

These two packages contain all the binary files including the compiler  components and libraries for both IA-32 and x86_64 machines. The compiler is built on a mainstream x86_64 Linux distribution. The 32-bit libraries are built on the same system by this compiler with '-m32' flag. The 64-bit libraries are built on the same system using this compiler. 

 

open64-<version>-<release>.i686.rpm  

This package contains the same files as open64-<version>-<release>.x86_64.rpm and can be used to install the compiler from RPM package on IA-32 platform.
