I am trying to install the Intel OpenCL SDK 2012 on Ubuntu 64 bit 12.04. For prior Ubuntu and SDK versions the alien tool just worked out fine for me. However, I had some problems using alien with the new SDK 2012 saying that
DB_VERSION_MISMATCH: Database environment version mismatch
The solution is
sudo rm ~./rpmdb/__db*
sudo rpm rebuilddb
sudo alien -i intel_ocl_sdk_2012_x64.rpm
Yet it would be so nice, if Intel provided a debian package, and also not only dynamic libraries but also the static libraries.
