Silent CLI only install still does GUI checks

Jump to solution

Hi,

My current project involves profiling against AWS instances that I spin up specifically for profiling.  The AWS instances get erased at the end of the session.  I'm therefore installing vTune profiler quite frequently (on Linux).

To save a little time each time I run up an instance, I'd hoped to use the silent install; so I ran through my 'normal' install using:

install.sh -d vtune_install.conf

In this installation, I customised it to remove GUI compnents.  The components recorded in `vtune_install.conf` were:
 

COMPONENTS=;intel-vtune-profiler-2020-cli-common__noarch;intel-vtune-profiler-2020-common__noarch;intel-vtune-profiler-2020-cli__x86_64;intel-vtune-profiler-2020-cli-32bit__i486;intel-vtune-profiler-2020-collector-32linux__i486;intel-vtune-profiler-2020-collector-64linux__x86_64;intel-vtune-profiler-2020-doc__noarch;intel-vtune-profiler-2020-sep__noarch;intel-vtune-profiler-2020-target__noarch;intel-vtune-profiler-2020-vpp-server__x86_64;intel-vtune-profiler-2020-common-pset

When I run

install.sh --silent vtune_install.sh

I get an error:

 

Missing critical prerequisite
-- ALSA library is not found. 'Graphical user interface' compenent(s) cannot be installed
...

with a bit more info about ALSA and then a complaint about X11 not being present followed by a suggestion to deselect the 'Graphical user interface'  compenent(s).  As I mentioned, I had done this in the manual install which I'd previously done to generate the config for the silent install, the selected components that I listed above from the config also don't seem to include GUI components.

Is it actually possible to do a silent install without the GUI and if so, how can this be done?

Many thanks,

Dominic

Hey Dominic,

 

Vtune is made available as a part of oneAPI basekit. We have confirmed the silent installation works fine for oneAPI base kit. Would it be possible for you to install oneAPI base kit onto your AWS instances and use  vtune available with the base kit. You can download oneAPI base kit from the below link.

Also you can find the information about installing oneAPI basekit using silent configuration by visiting the link below.
