Dear Prasanta,
we've already been running FLUKA under OpenSuse 11 successfully. Could
you be a little more specific what exactly your problem was when trying
to install it?

Without more information I would assume that you're running in the
problem of the missing G77 compiler. G77 is not shipped anymore with
more recent Linux distributions as it requires a GCC backend which is
already outdated and superseded by technologically totally different
backends. However, you can get G77 by installing a "compat-g77" package
which includes everything you need. For OpenSuse 11 (and I think also
for the previous version 10.3) such a compat package is not available
anymore but you can still use one which was packaged for Suse 10.2. I'd
suggest that you look for compat-g77-3.3.5-42.1.i586.rpm (
