Installing Intel® Performance Libraries and Intel® Distribution for Python* Using YUM Repository

This page provides general installation and support notes about the Community forum supported Intel® Performance Libraries and Intel® Distribution for Python* as they are distributed via the YUM repositories described below.

These software development tools are also available as part of the Intel® Parallel Studio XE and Intel® System Studio products. These products include enterprise-level Intel® Online Service Center support.

Setting up the Repository

Here is how to install the Intel YUM Repository. [Note: You must be logged in as root to set up and install the repository]

  1. Add the repositories in two ways:
    • Add all Intel® Performance Libraries and Intel® Distribution for Python* repositories at once:
      sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://yum.repos.intel.com/setup/intelproducts.repo
      You can enable or disable repositories in the intelproducts.repo file by setting the value of the enabled directive to 1 or 0 as required.
    • Add an individual product:
      • Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL):
        sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://yum.repos.intel.com/mkl/setup/intel-mkl.repo
      • Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP):
        sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://yum.repos.intel.com/ipp/setup/intel-ipp.repo
      • Intel® Threading Building Blocks (Intel® TBB):
        sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://yum.repos.intel.com/tbb/setup/intel-tbb.repo
      • Intel® Data Analytics Acceleration Library (Intel® DAAL):
        sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://yum.repos.intel.com/daal/setup/intel-daal.repo
      • Intel® MPI Library:
        sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://yum.repos.intel.com/mpi/setup/intel-mpi.repo
      • Intel® Distribution for Python*:
        sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://yum.repos.intel.com/intelpython/setup/intelpython.repo
  2. Import the gpg public key for the repository
    sudo rpm --import https://yum.repos.intel.com/intel-gpg-keys/GPG-PUB-KEY-INTEL-SW-PRODUCTS-2019.PUB

Troubleshooting

In certain cases, an update through the Intel YUM repositories may fail due to a caching issue. Please follow these steps in order to disable caching in YUM and clean up your local repo prior to update.

  1. Disable caching in YUM config file '/etc/yum.conf':
    http_caching=none
  2. Delete any temporary YUM files:
    rm -r /var/tmp/yum*
  3. Cleanup your local YUM repository:
    yum clean metadata
    yum clean all
  4. Reboot your machine
  5. Now re-attempt the YUM update:
    yum update
