Hello fellow developers,
i have been unable to install any version of Intel VTune Amplifier 2019 on a machine running Ubuntu 16.04.
Upon starting the installation process (./install.sh as root user / the same behaviour is observed when running with sudo) in cli-mode, the "Initializing, please wait..." is shown and the program starts allocating RAM until the latter is exhausted at which point the process is simply killed. The machine has 16GB of RAM + 32 GB of swap space.
Installation as a non-root user works properly, however the installer does not detect the user being able to evaluate rights, hence drivers etc. are not installed. My user is part of the wheel group and has (password protected) access to sudo.
I did have Parallel Studio XE 2017 installed previously (to /opt/intel/..., i.e. the canonical installation path), but uninstalled it using the supplied uninstall script and removed /opt/intel afterwards.
I have a working installation of VTune on a Arch Linux machine that used the same installer.
I hope anyone experienced similiar issues and may be able to assist me.
Best regards and thanks,
