we're using Debian Woody (3.0) on a 300-CPU Xeon cluster.
We also use VTune heavily, but of course only on special
test machines that have SuSE Linux installed so we can
install VTune there.
We'd very much like to see VTune working on Debian. The
remote data collector would be of some help, but the full
thing would be much better.
Like Georg we're using Debian Woody (3.0r5) but only on a small
Xeon cluster. We are also using Debian Sarge (3.1) on a few boxes.
We would like to see VTune working on Debian.
Debian-based distros. Ubuntu is #1 in the Distrowatch rankings,
and MEPIS is #4.
Even more disturbing is that if you try to use ICC 9.0 on
Fedora Core 4, you can't compile with the -ipo flag. The
error is that "(" isn't recognized!
I have been trying every single current distribution of Linux
in a vain attempt to find one that will seamlessly support
ICC, IPP, and VTune, but to no avail.
ICC and IPP work well on Debian-based distros and not on
Fedora-type distros. But VTune won't install at all on
Debian, because chkconfig doesn't exist.
That seems silly, because I don't want any VTune stuff started
at boot, anyway.
Can you tell me which environment *IS* supported ?

We are developing very complex embedded systems on multiple platforms and need a standards conforming C++ compiler to manage complexity. A single code base for multiple platforms (securing investions in software development) is very important for us, as well as tool availability.
We are currently using Debian, both Woody and Sarge, as well as some Ubuntu distributions.
We have been able to managed using Vtune rdc in all those distributions but It will be quite nice to have a proper installer without having to do work-arounds. To have a GUI in these distributions would be of great advantage for us.
I've registered for both the C compilers and Vtune to play with on some free software projects I play with in my spare time and whilst there are scripts around to get the C compilers going I've drawn a blank with Vtune.
Back to hacking the install script to make it sane..
I did muck around with trying to install it for (quite) some time but it looked like a bit of a deep hole :(
currently using open source valgrind, but just downloaded the vtune tar-ball, and was a bit disappointed that it wouldnt install.
hope intel will get rid of chkconfig, as we will not consider another linux distro.
