Hi all,

Thanks for the feedback.  I am using an AMD phenom CPU under fedora core 10 with gcc
4.3.2.  As with Josiah, the install hangs while running tester on the mtx module. 
It is uses 100% of one processor and just goes forever.

>>gfortran -v
Using built-in specs.
Target: i386-redhat-linux
Configured with: ../configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man

--disable-libjava-multilib --with-cpu=generic --build=i386-redhat-linux
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.3.2 20081105 (Red Hat 4.3.2-7) (GCC)

Anyway, I have access to machines with ifort now so I can carry on.
