-====== GAMS and Ubuntu Linux ======+====== ​Old GAMS and Ubuntu Linux (64bit)======
-There have been some issues with the installation of GAMS on Ubuntu Linux. ​It seems that the zip stuff is not compatible with ubuntuAlso csh was not available ​there. ​+There have been some issues with the installation of older GAMS distributions ​on Ubuntu Linux 64 bit (Linux ubuntu64 2.6.22-14-server). The main issue issue is that by default only 64bit programs will work there. ​
-  * leigams_sfx.exe ​did not run +Old GAMS installation scripts still relied on some 32bit programs (unzip) and thus did not work on a pure 64bit systemAlso some solvers were still 32 bit based and would not have worked either

-[ralm@ubuntu]:​ /​usr/​local/​gams$ ​./​leigams_sfx.exe +To install an old GAMS in such an environment,​ one would have needed to install the missing 32 bit libraries.

-but "unzip leigams_sfx.exe"​ ran OK.  + 
-  * no /bin/csh on the machine, so gamsunpack did not runAfter installing the tcsh package ​(it does not come as default in ubuntu, try: ''​sudo apt-get install tcsh''​) the problem was fixed.+If ''​gamsunpack''​ fails, you will also have to install ​the [[installation:​error_running_unpacking_script_._gamsunpack|tcsh package]]. 
 +With a current GAMS system, these steps should ​not be necessary anymore.
