Segmentation Fault in Installation Process

Segmentation Fault in Installation Process

Hi all,

I have downloaded parallel studio xe 2013 and tried to install it on our server. But right after I accepted the license agreement, there was a segmenation fault, then the installation process shut down. Is there anything wrong with my installation? Thanks

Do you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this license agreement?
Type "accept" to continue or "decline" to back to the previous menu: accept
./ line 552: 18931 Segmentation fault      $pset_engine_binary --tmp-dir=$user_tmp --log-file=$log_file $silent_params $duplicate_params $params --PACKAGE_DIR=$fullpath

Hello kdx1999,

I don't see any existing installation issues that match up with this. Can you provide the following info:

1. In your temp directory (probably /tmp), there should be some log files produced by the installation. They'll be called something like intel-*.log. Can you provide those? Skim the contents to make sure you are ok with attaching the files here. If the info there is anything you want to keep private, I would recommend creating a Premier Support issue at and sending the files there.
2. What flavor and version of Linux operating system are you installing on?
3. Are you doing a root, sudo or local installation?


I was able to reproduce this segfault by including some old license files in /opt/intel/licenses.  Once I remove all of the old licenses, and only included the current license file for the current product I was installing, then the segfault went away and I was able to install normally.

Hi burrell,

Thanks for spotting the problem. I had installed the product successfully based on your suggestion.
