I know Ubuntu is not officially supported, so i tried to build out VDK and RDC by myself, and I installed VDK-9.0 successfully in Ubuntu, but failed while trying to install rdc-9.0.
I did the following:
1. install alien
2. use alien to convert RPM packages into Deb
3. install the Deb package that contains the sourcecode.(the other packages can't be installedsuccessfully).
4. build out the module and install it
But when i trying to install rdc-9.0, i can't make it work, because i don't have a source package. and the Deb packages i converted from RPM can't be installed. Error information is like:
dpkg: error processing intel-vtune-rdc-runtimelibs_9.0p-1139_all.deb (--intall): trying to overwrite `/opt/intel/vtune/bin/uninstall_rdc.sh', which is also in package intal-vtune-rdc-common
I installed the deb packages use --force-all option, install succeeded, but vtserver can't start......
Does any body can help? or possibly point out a clue?
thanks a lot!
Can anybody tell me that Vtune definitly does not support Ubuntu?
It doesn'tworth spending (wasting) time on adapting VTune install for Debian-based Linux distributions. This is not as simple as just converting rpm package to deb pacakge and install it in the system.
There is a chance you can make VTune Remote Agent (Remot data collectors) working on Debian/Ubuntu. You need to move exising RDC files installed on SuSE or RedHad distros to the same location on Debian/Ubuntu + compile sampling driver. This will help to bypass all rpm-related issues. But threre is still no guarantee it will work.
As Dave already mentioned Watch the product web site for an announcement when support for Ubuntu* is added.
