I have a set of CentOS 7 machines on which I need to install Parallel Studio 2015 for using the C, C++, and Fortran compilers. However, when I launch the install script the installer informs me that my OS is not supported. It also informs me that RHEL 7 is supported, which is very much the same thing as CentOS 7. Is there a way to force the installation? Your feedback is appreciated.
I've filed a feature request to the install team to ensure the detection is correctly made as it's a bug. Note that the list of supported OSes is a pre-built list so it can be a problem of incorrect detection of OS version. You are correct CentOS 7 is basically same as RHEL 7, so you can proceed with the installation since this prerequisite is an optional warning so skipping and installing is perfectly fine like stated earlier by Tim.
Thank you for your response and taking the time to file a feature request. I did end up doing exactly what Tim said to do which was successful. I am happy with the result.
