upgrade gfortran/gcc?

I’m wondering if it’s a good idea to try upgrading gcc/gfortran for my 12.1x64 installation, or if it would be better to upgrade to 12.3, which would presumably upgrade also the gfortran/gcc. I’m a little afraid of breaking my 12.1 install, as it is a production machine. I should note that the reason for considering this is that I’m running into some compatibility issues with new NASA code that might be resolved in later releases of gfortran.

Suggestions?

TYIA! :slight_smile:

When will it be added to “evergreen”? I have no need/desire to upgrade
from 12.1 yet.

Using systemd as a reason is a lame excuse as sysvinit is still used in
12.1 and 12.2.

I do need the later Fortran, so is there a SAFE way to upgrade OpenSuSE 12.1? I don’t mind upgrading, but the last time I tried took a long time to recover from.
