I'm having problems with getting CAMB working on Sierra.

First off, I have the latest version of gfortran installed
GNU Fortran (GCC) 6.3.0
Copyright (C) 2016 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
This is free software; see the source for copying conditions.  There is NO

The latest version of pyCAMB says that it fixed the compilation issue with 6.3, but theres another post ( where someone was having problems with 6.3.

When I run from inside the camb/pycamb folder:
sudo python install --user
I get the following error:
mkdir -p Releaselib
gfortran -shared -fPIC -O3 -fopenmp -ffast-math -fmax-errors=4 -JReleaselib -IReleaselib/ -c constants.f90 -o Releaselib/constants.o
FATAL:/opt/local/bin/../libexec/as/x86_64/as: I don't understand 'm' flag!

Running through the code, I see that the starts the subprocess "make".
That ends up running Makefile, which gets to the end and starts running Makefile_main.
When gfortran ($(F90C)) is called in the line ,
$(DLL_DIR)/%.o: %.f90
   $(F90C) $(SF90FLAGS) -c $*.f90 -o $(DLL_DIR)/$*.o

the error pops up.

If anyone know why this is happening, please let me know.
After trying to get around this I finally took Caldwell's advice and installed gfortran v5.3.
Running no longer pops us the 'm' flag error, but now I get a strange:
gfortran -dynamiclib -fPIC -O3 -fopenmp -ffast-math -fmax-errors=4 -JReleaselib -IReleaselib/ -c utils.F90 -o Releaselib/utils.o
/var/tmp//ccijfDb9.s:9224:suffix or operands invalid for `movq'
/var/tmp//ccijfDb9.s:9328:suffix or operands invalid for `movq'
make: *** [Releaselib/utils.o] Error 1

looking a the traceback, the problem appears to be in the file:

SystemExit                                Traceback (most recent call last)

    100             print(" chmod 755 Releaselib/")
    101   "chmod 755 Releaselib/", shell=True)

SystemExit: Compilation failed

At this point I gave up.
If anyone can help with either the prior issue or the present one, that would be great.[url][/url]

As with that post, it's probably an issue with your gfortran/gcc/ports installation, e.g. cf

If you have problems I'd just compile and run it in one of the CosmoBox virtual environments instead.
