The Intel® compilers have installation requirements that some users would like to bypass. The technique covered in this FAQ provides workarounds for the following default constraints:
The rpm utility must be used
Root access must be available
Multiple minor versions cannot be installed
To install the compilers on Linux* systems and bypass one or more of the above requirements, please use the unsupported method described below.
The following example steps demonstrate the installation of the ia-32 Fortran compiler version 8.1.022, without root privileges, into a user's home directory. The $HOME directory can be substituted by whatever you desire. The steps can be repeated for multiple compilers, and can be generalized to also apply to the C++ compiler, and compilers for the Itanium architecture.
Move the compiler tar archive into the desired directory ($HOME for this example) and create an "opt" subdirectory.
# <download l_fc_pc_8.1.022.tar.gz to $HOME>
$ cd $HOME
$ mkdir opt
Extract the compiler archive which is sitting in your current working directory.
$tar xzvf l_fc_pc_8.1.022.tar.gz
Using rpm2cpio, convert the compiler rpm files to cpio format.
