I have beenusing Parallel Studio XEon Windows and am quite pleased with the installation procedure.
Installation on Linux (Ubuntu 11.10) is problematic.
In the past, on Windows, I could install for example parallel_studio_xe_2011_update2_setup.exe, before installing the original release (and/or intervening updates). An example of this is when I wipe my system and reinstall O/S, Visual Studio (updates to MS), then directly install parallel_studio_xe_2011_update2_setup.exe. This works fine.
On Linux though this seems not the case.
When installing parallel_studio_xe_2011_update2.tgz, the checking prerequisites saying missing components (32-bit Parallel Studio XE libraries) when in fact the archive contains the 32-bit libraries.
When installing parallel_studio_xe_2011_sp1_update1.tgz, the checking prerequisites saying missing components:
Intel Commposer XE 2011 Update 7 for Linux*: unsupported OS
... VTune ...
when in fact the archive contains thethese components.
If I skip prerequisits, installation proceeds to an additionnal check for prerequisits, then complains about missing 32-bit libraries.
Skipping prerequisits, is proceeding now. As to if this succeeds... who knows.
Your installation script needs some work.
BTW, on the first attempt to install parallel_studio_xe_2011_sp1_update1.tgz, I did not receive an option to skip the prerequisit. The second run of the install permitted me to skip the prerequisit (then it proceeds to install that component which it was complaining about being missing).
