[Trilinos-Users] Trilinos Release 12.6 - Supported OS and Compiler Combinations?

I have been trying to build Trilinos on a Windows 7 box, using two
different environments:

   1) Command line window of Visual Studio 2015, specifically:

         VS2015 x64 Native Tools Command Prompt

      where the compiler version is:

         Microsoft (R) C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 19.00.23506 for x64
         Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

      using the -G "NMake Makefiles" with cmake (Version 3.5.1)

   2) Command line window with a MinGW installation of gcc, where the
      compiler version is:

        >gcc --version
        gcc (GCC) 5.3.0
        Copyright (C) 2015 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
        This is free software; see the source for copying conditions.  There is NO

      using the -G "MinGW Makefiles" with cmake (Version 3.5.1)

Having worked through configure issues and getting Makefiles for both
environments from cmake, I am getting various compiler errors when trying
to build.  I have been trying to build various simple combinations of
packages to minimize the requirements for TPLs.  I am surprised at getting
compiler errors from the gcc compiler, since I assume this is the linux
compiler of choice.

My question is:  Which OS(s) and compiler(s) is the release version of Trilinos
built and tested with?  I have tried to read everything I can find about building
Trilinos and cannot seem to locate this information.  A table of supported
operating systems and compilers would be a good start for newbies trying to
build Trilinos for the first time.

Thank you for your help (in advance).

With best regards,

Bob Cochran
