Reinstalling Intel Composer XE 2011 for Linux

I'm having trouble re-installing version 12 of the compiler (via Intel Composer XE 2011 for Linux) after previously removing an install.
The sequence of events was as follows:

1) Installed Intel Composer XE 2011 on Fedora 14 to a fresh /opt/intel directory
2) Decided I wanted to roll back to version 11.1, so I deleted /opt/intel directory
3) Installed 11.1 to fresh /opt/intel directory
4) Changed my mind again, wanted to return to v12, so I deleted /opt/intel directory
5) Attempted to install Intel Composer XE 2011 to fresh /opt/intel directory, but I receive the message ->

"The Intel Composer XE 2011 for Linux* is already installed.

If you want to reinstall the Intel Composer XE 2011 for Linux*
please uninstall current version and run install script again."

What remnant of the previous install is it detected, and how do I resolve this?

Thanks

Hi Steven,

You can't delete old version folder directly.
Please read release_notesC.pdf in 2.3 section about Removal/Uninstall for more details.

Thanks,
Wise

I should have seen this information earlier. But I deleted the compose directory for fortran directly. Then what can I do in this case?

And I installed Ccomposexe then, no script called uninstall found. If there is somewhere keep some information about the installation?

I am having the same problem. Tried to reinstall Fortran Composer XE 2011 for Linux after deleting original /opt/intel directory but continue to get request to uninstall previous. I have the uninstall script for an 11.1 installation, but that only want to uninstall 11.1 components. How do I wipe the slate clean and start over?

Please try the following:

1. Download the uninst_12.0.084.tgz attachment from this reply and place on your system in /tmp
2. Become root (su or sudo), thencd /tmp
3. Unpack the file: tar -zxf uninst_12.0.084.tgz
4. Change into the new sub-directory: cd uninst_12.0.084
5. Execute the script: ./uninstall.sh

Please let me know if this is successful.

Unfortunately, it didn't solve the problem. I ran the script as you advised, and asked it to uninstall all components. It seemed to run correctly, but when I tried the reinstall, I still get the same message to uninstall first. I ran your script again and this time it couldn't find anything to uninstall, which makes sense. It seems there is a signature of the previous install still buried somewhere on the system. I even deleted relevant messages in /var/log, but this didn't help.

Kevin,

I just noticed your script was for the 084 release, but I am trying to install release 107. That must be a problem, correct?

Ok, so you have XE 2011 Update 1. It may matter. I'll bundle that and post shortly.

There may be issues with obtaining file uploads within private replies. So, let's try this public post too. Let me know if you get the file from here or the ftp.intel.com.

Kevin,

I see your recent post that refers to 'uninst_12.1.107a.tgz'. I can't seem to download from that attachment. How can I get it?

Kevin,

Did this issue ever get resolved? I still haven't been able to re-install XE 2011 Update1.

Hi T. Rosmond.

Yes it was resolved. Sorry for not seeing your earlier private post. We are not receiving notification of private replies in all cases.

I am private again here to share the details with you on how to resolve this.

Attachment downloads from the Forum are also still not fully functional, so grab the file from ftp.intel.com here: ftp://ftp.intel.com/pub/outgoing/uninst_12.1.107a.tgz

Next, following these instructions and make sure you do them as "root":

1. Download the uninst_12.1.107a.tgz and place on your system in /tmp
2. Unpack the file: tar -zxf uninst_12.1.107a.tgz
3. For files that should be in /tmp/uninst_12.1.107a, change the owner and group to be "root" using:

chgrp -R root /tmp/uninst_12.1.107a
chown -R root /tmp/uninst_12.1.107a

4. Next, create a directory with this command: mkdir -p /opt/intel/composerxe-2011.1.107/bin
5. Now copy the files into this directory with: cp -pR /tmp/uninst_12.1.107a/* /opt/intel/composerxe-2011.1.107/bin/
6. Now execute uninstall.sh using the full path like this: /opt/intel/composerxe-2011.1.107/bin/uninstall.sh

Keep me posted.

Kevin,

Thanks for replying. Unfortunately it looks like too much time has elapsed (only 24 hours according to the banner on the Intel ftp server), so uninst_12.1.107a.tgz is gone. Could you please put the file back and then notify me via e-mail (rosmond@reachone.com) so I can jump in and get the file before it vanishes again.

Thanks,

T. Rosmond

Hi T. Rosmond,

I re-posted the file below to this forum thread reply, included a copy in the e-mail sent the address requested, and placed it onto ftp.intel.com at: ftp://ftp.intel.com/pub/outgoing/uninst_12.1.107a.tgz

Hopefully you can obtain it from one of these three options. Keep me posted.

Hi All, Kevin,
The file is gone again - can you repost and will this be fixed in future versions of Composer? I tried to move directories where I installed the software and it has turned into a nightmare trying to get rid of it - I've tried deleting everythin I can think of, I would have had to reinstall the OS if I couldn't fix this - Thanks!

As I indicated, I intentionally removed the file. I don't want to leave it posted permanently.

There's nothing to fix since there's nothing broken. One cannot remove or movethe software without using the uninstall/install scripts.People are getting into troubleby removing the software with 'rm' and that's insufficient. The uinstall script performs a complete removal.

Ire-posted the file to this reply. If you did not install in /opt/intel and you are not using the 107 update, that matters, so please let me know the custom directory name and update you have.

Hey,
i have also done the same mistake like you have done.
But get rid of this problem by doing this.
  1. Just use your Package Manager (e.g. gnome package manager or yum )and search for the "intel"
  2. Remove all software related IntelC++ Compiler, IntelMath Kernel Library, debuggers, composer X etc.
  3. Then try to install "Intel Composer XE 2011 for Linux"
Best of luck::

I am also having no success uninstalling the package. However I have not deleted any directories in /opt/intel. I have read section 2.6 of the "Installation Guide and Release Notes", and I have no such subdirectory as ia32 (i am 32 bit), and there is no 'uninstall_cprof.sh' script on my machine.

Kevin, could you please re-post the uninstall script? I don't want to reinstall my OS.
