Which Linux flavors will this run on?
Posted on 2016-11-25
We needed to ask a programmer that left us with some code, which flavors of Linux the code would run on. He was not sure but gave us the following.
I can only tell you that I built it on Debian7 with oldest version of g++ that will compile my code.
This is version 4.6.4 which has some basic (not full, but enough) support for C++ V11.
The code will not compile with anything older than that. In fact
I had to re-write a few things using non C++11 constructs to get it to compile on such an old compiler.
The compiler is dated April 12th 2013, so it should work on all Linux versions the same age or nwere and probably a few older ones but I have no idea which run-time library versions are installed by default on each Linux variant.
Using the information above, can you tell me for sure which flavors of Linux this would run on?
I know it runs on centos7, debian7 but what else will it for sure run on.
