Red Hat Linux 7.1 support

Red Hat Linux 7.1 support

Hi team,

I've downloaded the linux compilers 7.1 and its docs say I need one of two glibc versions, either 2.2.5 or 2.2.93. On my default Red Hat 7.1 distribution, the default glibc is 2.2.2.

Is upgrading my glib the only option here? Seems to me that a default distribution should be part of the deal, yes?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

I take the meaning of the docs to be that the compiler is tested only against those versions of glibc, not that it won't work with similar earlier versions. Yours is fairly old. I've been running with glibc-2.2.4 with no problems, and I believe that is about 2 years old. It's not feasible for a compiler to support fully a range of linux distros from a much longer period. This could be among the reasons why the Intel 6.01 compilers remain in use.

Tim's reply is correct.


Makes sense!
