Installing Parallel Studio XE 2018 on Slackware 14.2 x86-64

Installing Parallel Studio XE 2018 on Slackware 14.2 x86-64

Hello,

Intel Parallel Studio XE 2018 Beta installed and run fine on my Slackware 14.2 64-bit system. However, when the PS XE 2018 final version has been released, I downloaded and, first, removed the Beta version and then attempted to install PS XE 2018 final version and ended up with an error like this:
 

# ./install.sh
parallel_studio_xe_2018_professional_edition/./pset/32e/install: error while loading shared libraries: libimf.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

What could be the problem?

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

A likely reason may be that you don't have a full installation of 32 bit g++ and supporting libraries. You could start installation over and select components to install, unchecking ia32 . If you need the full 32 and 64 bit installation you will need to find a repository for the 32 bit g++ libraries for your distro. Ideally, Intel installer would tell you about lacking 32 bit prerequisites and offer to install intel64 only.

Thank you for your answer. Yes, my system is pure 64-bit with no 32-bit libraries and tools. However, the PS XE 2018 Beta was installed and run fine on this system but not the final release. Isn't that strange? I can't even get to the installation point where 32-bit tools are deselected. The install script complains and quits.
 

libimf.so is an Intel-supplied library.  Sits in the compiler installation directory under your ..../compilers_and_libraries_2017/linux/lib/ia32 or intel64/ directory.

If I had to guess, you uninstalled the beta before this installation?

I suspect Intel might have a problem with their installer - someone at Intel might've linked in libimf.so dynamically to some installer executable OR their stupid, brain-dead license manager.

To work around this, re-install the beta compiler.  Then 'source compilervars.sh ia32'   - this should set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to find the 32bit version of libimf.so.  THEN try the 18.0 product installer.  This would be a hack workaround to a messed up installer package.  Good luck, let us know if this works.  If it does, we know their installer has a bug.

Cheers

Ron

Thank you for your workaround, Ronald G. After installing the beta compiler, the final release did install. However,

source compilervars.sh intel64

worked successfully. Sourcing the ia32 architecture also produced the 'libimf.so' error when I ran the final release install script.

At the end of the installation, it gave libimf.so error as below because it was overwriting the previous beta installation. But the final installed product works fine.

Thank you for installing Intel(R) Parallel Studio XE 2018
Professional Edition for Fortran and C++ Linux*.

 

it seems that there is a bug with the ipsxe 2018 rtm.

could you report to Intel Online Service center and attach the installation log so we can investigate?

thanks,

Jennifer
