Last updated on AUGUST 19, 2020

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.57 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

1. Would the gcc packages for RHEL 6 fulfill the software requirement for Visual COBOL on a RHEL 7 Linux server?
 
2. There is a very long list of 32-bit packages starting with gcc, such as gcc-c++, gcc-gfortran, gcc-gnat , gcc-toolset-9-binutils-devel, etc. Is it necessary to download, and install all of them?  For example, when installing the 64-bit library gcc*x86_64, the following packages are included:

Installation:
gcc                   x86_64     4.8.5-39.el7     rhel-7-server-rpms      16 M
gcc-c++               x86_64     4.8.5-39.el7     rhel-7-server-rpms     7.2 M
gcc-gfortran          x86_64     4.8.5-39.el7     rhel-7-server-rpms     6.7 M
gcc-gnat              x86_64     4.8.5-39.el7     rhel-7-server-rpms      13 M
gcc-objc              x86_64     4.8.5-39.el7     rhel-7-server-rpms     5.8 M
gcc-objc++            x86_64     4.8.5-39.el7     rhel-7-server-rpms     6.2 M
Installation for dependencies:
cpp                   x86_64     4.8.5-39.el7     rhel-7-server-rpms     6.0 M
libgfortran           x86_64     4.8.5-39.el7     rhel-7-server-rpms     300 k
libgnat               x86_64     4.8.5-39.el7     rhel-7-server-rpms     967 k
libgnat-devel         x86_64     4.8.5-39.el7     rhel-7-server-rpms     2.7 M
libobjc               x86_64     4.8.5-39.el7     rhel-7-server-rpms      80 k
libquadmath           x86_64     4.8.5-39.el7     rhel-7-server-rpms     190 k
libquadmath-devel     x86_64     4.8.5-39.el7     rhel-7-server-rpms      53 k
