Intel(R) Threading Blocks 4.2 update 5 for OS X* installation issue

After Installation icc throws a warning: ld: warning: directory not found for option '-L/opt/intel/composer_xe_2013_sp1.3.168/compiler/lib'

I created an empty directory. Now the message is gone. Is this the correct way to handle this?

Hi Martin,

It appears that we don't have stand-alone TBB installer for OS X.  It is a component of Composer XE 2013 SP1.  You may download Composer XE 2013 SP1 Update 3 from IRC.  Its default installation directory is /opt/intel/composer_xe_2013_sp1.3.166, not /opt/intel/composer_xe_2013_sp1.3.168.

we do have standalone Intel TBB installer for OS X. Martin, it would be good if you submit an issue to the premier support. I'll ask our support team to look at this.

Feilong, you can get in touch with me if you need more info. /opt/intel/composer_xe_2013_sp1.3.168 is folder for Intel(R) Threading Blocks 4.2 update 5. /opt/intel/composer_xe_2013_sp1.3.166 is folder for update 4 of Intel TBB (and Composer XE 2013 SP1 update 3)



I have the same  problem and (more or less) the same problem with the previus up date.

(see may post in the middle of november 2013 and the solution).

Maybe .........



Thank you, Giorgio,

I tried that and first, it did not work.

Then I changed the PROD_DIR in /opt/intel/composer_xe_2013_sp1.3.168/bin/ to /opt/intel/composer_xe_2013_sp1.3.166

Now the message is gone. Hope, I got it right now.

Hello Martin!

Maybe the question is naive but "where" you've changed the PROD_DIR




In the file /opt/intel/composer_xe_2013_sp1.3.168/bin/ line 10


Hello Martin!

I corrected the file sh but the message remains.
However, aside from the annoying message it seems that everything works.


Do you have "source /opt/intel/bin/ intel64" in your .profle?

yes I have
