vtl3 installation experiences

Hi, I want to share my experiences installing the VTL3.0 beta. These are my observations:

1. The option to proceed if the installation platform is not supported is only available in the "custom" menu.

2. Get the following errors while installing:

---
The VTune Performance Analyzer 3.0 for Linux* is being installed...

The install destination has been set to /opt/intel/vtune

Registering VTune Performance Analyzer files, please wait...
It may take several minutes.

Registration is done.

Note: Performance tuning, by its nature, collects large amounts of data and
hence the product requires creating a common directory for global data.
The default directory will be /opt/intel/vtune/global_data. If this is
acceptable please just hit enter or type in the full path of the
directory at the prompt. Ensure that the chosen path on disk has
adequate space for all users. Where do you want to create directory
for global data?
Specify directory starting with '/'. [ /opt/intel/vtune/global_data ]:
install.sh: line 2196: [: /home/marcus/Intel/vtune: binary operator expected
install.sh: line 2196: [: /home/marcus/Intel/vtune: binary operator expected
install.sh: line 2196: [: /home/marcus/Intel/vtune: binary operator expected
install.sh: line 2196: [: /home/marcus/Intel/vtune: binary operator expected
install.sh: line 2196: [: /home/marcus/Intel/vtune: binary operator expected

Note: The VTune Performance Analyzer 3.0 for Linux* requires a user to be a member of
the "vtune" group. If users and groups on this system are
------

This is due to the installer being in a path with spaces. The correct path mentioned should be "/home/marcus/Intel/vtune files/..."




3. The following issue happens if installing Eclipse:

------
Where would you like to install Eclipse* Platform RunTime Binary, Version 2.1.3 for GTK* [/opt/intel]? : /opt/eclipse/rtl


Location "/ opt/eclipse/rtl" provided by you does not exist.
Would you like this folder to be created (Yes/No)? [Yes]
Press ENTER key to accept default choice, or input a valid choice : /opt/eclipse/rtl
------

The directory is not created because it does not chain the creation with mkdir -p (neither eclipse or rtl exists at this moment).



4. Also:

------
Which of the following would you like to install?
1. Eclipse* Platform RunTime Binary, Version 2.1.3 for GTK* (Recommended). (Installed)
2. Eclipse* Platform RunTime Binary, Version 2.1.3 for Motif*.
3. WebLogic* JRockit* 1.4.2 JRE for Linux* (Recommended).
b. Return to the main menu.

Please type a selection: b


sh: line 1: cd: /home/marcus/Intel/vtune: No such file or directory
Exiting...
-------

This has also to do with the spaces in the name of the directory.





5. Eclipse script vtlec is not updated.

If you run the eclipse installation again and change the execution package, the vtlec script is not updated to point to the selected option.




Cheers,
GM.

Update:

Tryed to install on Gentoo, the installer gives the following error after the Licenses (all 4) acceptance:

---
Enter 'accept' to continue, 'reject' to exit: accept
ERROR: unable to find command $c
Please add the location to the above commands to your PATH and re-run the script
Please press Enter to continue

Cheers,

Question to the readers of this forum: how many Gentoo users out there? Just curious here, inside Intel.
:)
Reply to this note and let us know if Gentoo is a distro that we should be supporting.

Here is at least one Gentoo user who would be greatful for Vtune supporting this distro :)
