Intel C++ Compiler on almalinux 8

I am trying to setup the Intel C++ Compiler suite for Deltares (see www.deltares.nl  for what we do). We are currently using AlmaLinux 8 (https://almalinux.org ) as an Operating System on which we setup the compiler.

 

For the ones who do not know: Redhat decided to rename its developers edition CentOS  to a CentOS Stream from version 8 on. This effectively mean that they are using it to develop new features and thus it can be less stable. In reaction on this, the community got Alma Linux and Rocky Linux, which basically follow the main trunk of Redhat.

 

That being said, when I install the Intel C++ Compiler to almalinux 8 via the offline installer l_dpcpp-cpp-compiler_p_2023.1.0.46347_offline.sh I got:

 

Extract l_dpcpp-cpp-compiler_p_2023.1.0.46347_offline completed! Checking system requirements... Done.

Wait while the installer is preparing... Done.

Launching the installer... This machine uses operating system "Unknown". Compatibility issues may occur. Installation can continue; however, product functionality may not meet expectations because this product is untested on this operating system. 

<snip>

Start installation flow...

Installed Location: /opt/apps/intel_cpp/2023.1.0 Log files: /tmp/willem/intel_oneapi_installer/2023.04.07.10.58.46.804 Installation has successfully completed

 

We are curious about the unknown, since almalinux is basically binary  compatible with Redhat 8 ? It can be that almalinux is not yet fully tested.

Hi,


Thanks for posting in Intel Communities.


Yes, AlmaLinux OS is a 1:1 binary compatible fork of RHEL. But, Almalinux is not tested with oneApi C++.


Hence, the system requirements to set up the Intel C++ compiler are not met.

 

Please refer to the below link for supported & tested versions of Linux.

Please let us know, if you still face any issues.


Thanks & Regards,

Hi,

 

Thanks for the answer. Do you know when the platforms AlmaLinux and RockyLinux (also a binary fork of Redhat) are being tested so that Intel can support those as well.

Hi, 


Thanks for waiting for our response. Unfortunately, we don't currently plan to test or support Almalinux with oneAPI components. Instead, we fully support Rockylinux 8 and 9 for all oneAPI components, except for the oneAPI DPC++/C++ compiler. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We can't confirm if Rockylinux testing will be supported in the future.


Please let us know if we've answered all your questions and if we can close this thread.


Thanks & Regards,

Vankudothu Vaishnavi.
