Although we do provide binaries for most common operating systems (Windows, MacOS, Linux), the easiest way to give gfortran a try might be to install a gfortran package provided by your OS vendor.

Debian

GFortran is included in Debian (since Etch) in the gfortran package. Lenny contains 4.3, Old stable (squeeze) contains GCC 4.4; stable (wheezy) and testing (jessie) GCC 4.7. Depending on the Debian version, also the packages gfortran-4.1 to gfortran-4.8 are available.

Ubuntu

GFortran is inclued in Ubuntu (since Drapper) in the gfortran package. The long-term-support (LTS) version "Lucid" has GCC 4.4; Maverick has 4.4, Natty 4.5, Oneiric and Precise Pangolin (LTS) have 4.6. Quantal Quetzal and Raring Ringtail have 4.7. While Saucy will have 4.8.

Additionally, minor updates and new testing versions are available (installation hints).

Fedora

Fedora 20 will ship and Fedora 19 does ship GCC/gfortran 4.8. Fedora 17 and 18 ship with GCC/gfortran 4.7. Fedora 16 and Fedora 15 ship with 4.6, Fedora 14 has 4.5, Fedora 13 has 4.4.3, Fedora 12 comes with GCC 4.4.2, Fedora 11 with GCC 4.4, Fedora 10 with 4.3.2, Fedora 9 with GCC 4.3.0; Fedora 5 to 8 come with GCC 4.1 as system compiler. Fedora 3 and 4 come with GCC 4.0.x (avoid, use at least 4.1.x)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux / CentOS

RHEL/CentOS 5.x come with GCC 4.1; newer 5.x ship also GCC 4.3 or GCC 4.4 as technical preview. RHEL/CentOS 6 has GCC 4.4. The Red Hat Developer Toolset allows to install newer GCC versions in parallel.

Mandriva

Contains gfortran in the gcc-gfortran package.
