MKL on debian?

MKL on debian?

Hi,

Has somebody tried to install MKL on Debian testing? In contrast to the intel compilers, which can be converted with 'alien' into .deb packages, the MKL has no explicit rpm files...

Thanks in advance,

Miguel

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

In the recent versions of MKL you simply need to run the install. If you do not have root access or rpmyou are able to exit the install, and obtain the rpm in the tmp directory that you specified in the install script.

Thanks for the hint. I just called install and everything was fine. The only thing is that I had to do it as a user and install it locally, since otherwise as root it complains about the rpm database.

Thanks again

Thanks for the note. Are you using MKL 8.0? If so I'd like to let our install team know.

Yes, I use MKL 8.0. Here is the output of the installation:

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

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
Press Enter to continue

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

I wanted to attach the mkl_install.log file, but the BBS does not allow that.

Greetings from Spain,
