Hello Szymon,

I am looking into this issue and will get back to you shortly with more information.

Intel Developer Support

If I recall correctly, Ubuntu uses the dash shell by default.Dash is not fully compatible with bash or sh, as those scripts are assuming.

As Andres noted, the issue is that Ubuntu uses dash, and dash does not support some bash extensions which are used in the install script.

The KB article FLEXlm license manager 2.0 installer may fail using dashexplains how to work around this issue.

That did the trick, thank you very much:)

Although i came across some more problems i succesfully installed whole FLEXlm license manager (and Intel Cluster Studio). Here is what problems i've encountered and how to solve them step by step:

1. In case of an error ./Install_INTEL: 43: Syntax error: "(" unexpected simply change dash to bash by commands:
# rm /bin/sh
# ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh

2. Later, if your getting an error *** Error: installed software will not run; package might be for the wrong platform, or corrupted do the following:
Check if you have LSB up and running:
$ lsb_release
If not, then execute:
# ln -s /lib64/ /lib64/

3. When you run lmgrd you can encounter the following error Can't make directory /usr/tmp/.flexlm, errno: 2(No such file or directory). Just create a symlink there:
#ln -s /tmp /usr/tmp

That is all, hope someone will find it helpful.

Excellent, I needed help with all the 3 steps above. Now it works. In step 1. I simple replaced #!/bin/sh by #!/bin/bash, it worked as well.Many thanks/dziekuje
