Intel® Distribution for Python* Known Issues

Intel® Distribution for Python* can become unstable and potentially crash because of the following:

Conda package manager for Linux 2.7.11:

  • Trying to install or update a package using conda will show a list of packages incompatibilities.
  • After installing the distribution run the following command:
    conda update –y conda intelpython

PYTHONPATH should be cleared before installation (set PYTHONPATH=) on Windows

  • Python*
  • Intel® Parallel Studio XE
  • Intel® Distribution for Python*
  • What's New in the 2016 R2 Intel RealSense SDK?

    The second release in 2016 (2016R2) of the Intel® RealSense™ SDK (for Windows) is v10.0.26.0396.  
    The minimum versions of the  Intel® RealSense™ camera DCMs have been raised for R200  to 2.1.24.9476 and for SR300 to 3.1.25.1077 with F200 requiring 1.4.27.41944 or later.
    The supported version of Unity has been raised to 5.2.3.p3 or later (previously v4.1). Note: Unity 5 requires 64 bit libraries.

    Intel RealSense SDK Changes for User Facing Cameras

    Below  please find a high level list of changes between releases of the Intel® RealSenseTM SDK for the front facing (user facing, short range) Intel® RealSenseTM  cameras F200 and SR300.

    Note: Version numbers and release numbers are unfortunately not the same. This article will refer to the version number which until 2016 is equal to the release number + 2 (so R5 is v7),  and 2016 R1 is version 8.

    Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 installer freezes when updating Intel® Cluster Checker 3.0 in some instances

    In the Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Installer for Linux*, when updating to Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Update 2 Cluster Edition through Intel® Software Manager, the online installer may freeze.

    This will happen when the following two conditions are met:

  • Professional
  • Professors
  • Students
  • Linux*
  • C/C++
  • Fortran
  • Intel® Parallel Studio XE Cluster Edition
  • Intel® Cluster Checker
  • Cluster Computing
  • Known Issue with CSH Environment Variable Scripts

    In Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Updates 1 and 2 for Linux*, there is an issue with the cshell environment variable scripts.  The mpsvars.sh environment variable script contains a mistake which can cause errors.  In order to avoid this, the psxevars.csh script does not call the itacvars.csh script.  If you wish to enable the itacvars.csh script to be called from psxevars.csh script, please make the following modifications:

  • Linux*
  • Intel® Parallel Studio XE
  • Option "-z defs" is no longer needed to detect missing symbols in code targeting Intel MIC Architecture at link time

    Prior to Intel® Compiler 15.0 in the offload compilation model, the binaries targeting the Intel MIC Architecture were generated as dynamic libraries (.so). Dynamic libraries do not need all referenced variables or routines to be resolved during linking as these can be resolved during load time. This behavior could mask some missing variable or routine in the application resulting in a failure during load time. In order to identify and resolve all missing symbols at link time, option "-z defs" must be provided to the linker.

  • Intel Compiler Help Documentation Fails to Launch from IDE When Installed on Japanese Version of Windows

    The problem occurs when performing a custom installation of Intel(R) Parallel Studio XE 2016 on a Japanese version of Windows* OS where the custom installation specifies an installation path that contains non-English characters. This results in any documents selected from the Microsoft Visual Studio* "Help > Intel Compilers and Libraries" pull down menu to fail to launch and the browser's default page appearing instead.

  • Microsoft Windows* (XP, Vista, 7)
  • Microsoft Windows* 10
  • Microsoft Windows* 8.x
  • C/C++
  • Fortran
