Intel MKL Installation

Intel MKL Installation

Hi there,

I have recently downloaded the free non-commercial copy of l_fcompxe_2013.3.163 and the following were selected and installed:

Intel(R) Composer XE 2013 Update 3 for Linux*
Intel Fortran Compiler XE 13.1 Update 1 on Intel(R) 64
Intel Debugger 13.0 on Intel(R) 64
Intel Math Kernel Library 11.0 Update 3 on Intel(R) 64
 I chose a non-root installation type. Following the manual instruction, this should have installed by default in /opt/intel but this is not the case as it is installed in my home directory: /home/aminat/intel.

Also, the mkl libraries were not installed along side with this because when I compile my prog, it says mkl libraries cannot be found or not installed. Though, I found them under the subdirectory rpms in the extracted file.

The following give information about my system:

Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS \n \l

partition/disk space:

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/sdb1       3.7G  3.0G  764M  80% /media/646E-E24B

machine architecture:

Linux aminat-laptop 3.2.0-43-generic #68-Ubuntu SMP Wed May 15 03:33:33 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Please how do I install the mkl so that my programme can see it?

Thanks in advance.

Could you check the following article on other install options?


I suggest you that you make a install with de source code, with the command ./sh
