installing MKL on Ubuntu ?

Hello all !

I am trying to install MKL on Ubuntu linux and the installer keeps failing. I am quoting a part of the installation log as echoed:

---------------------------------------------------------------

Where do you want to extract temporary files to? Specify directory starting with '/' [ /tmp/mkl ] :
Extracting... ############################################################################# [ 99%]

Extracting... ############################################################################## [100%]

rpm: To install rpm packages on Debian systems, use alien. See README.Debian.
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - No such file or directory (2)

WARNING: RPM prevents installation into a non-default directory. Install destination is set to /opt/intel/mkl/8.0.2
Press Enter to continue

Installing RPM package...
Installation failed. You can find installation files in /tmp/mkl.
Please see "/var/log/mkl_install.log" for installation details.
Press Enter to continue.

Warning: It seems installation failed
Deleting temporary files...

Press Enter key to continue...
---------------------------------------------------------------

Any help on how to get this up and running will be really appreciated.

Thanks and regards!

Hello,I had similar problems installing MKL and IPP on Debian Linux. I was able to solve them by first installing rpm utility, then initializing the rpm database (with rpm --initdb) and finally by installing the library rpms manually (to the default location) with command:rpm -U --replacefiles --nodeps -h intel-mkl-8.1p-14.i386.rpm(And similar command for two IPP rpms)Hope this helps.Dmitry
