There's PSPP (the statistical engine, which can be used on the command line to execute syntax files) and PSPPIRE (the graphical interface).  I haven't tried recently, but PSPP has built fine on CentOS 6.  Not so with the gui.  One of the PSPP developers helped me get an older version of PSPPIRE up and running on 6 but I think dependencies like GTK3 make it unlikely that current versions of PSPP will run on 6. I can be more specific if you want the details. I may have a patch that allowed 0.8.4 (two releases ago) to compile PSPPIRE on 6.

I haven't tried 7 but I think fairly recent versions of PSPP run on recent versions of Fedora. I think the developers mostly use Debian-based distros.

At one time I wanted to look into statically linking PSPP.  I'm not a C programmer, but I think that would build a binary that could be used on older CentOS.

We are trying intall PSPP onto centOS6 but there seems be a lot of issues to install there vs. centOS5 or 7.  Does anyone have any short cuts that may help out with an install on centOS6?

Will - can you add some detail to this?

Thanks so much
