2017 Beta doesn't support OS X El Capitan

Hi

2017 Beta doesn't support OS X El Capitan. When I try to run the installer, it just says the application is damaged. Any plan to support El Capitan?

Thanks

Hi Larry,

Thanks for trying the Beta.

Although the 2017 Beta Intel Python does not officially support OS X El Capitan, we were at least able to install and run Intel Python on that system.  Are you trying to install python 2 or 3?

Hi Chris

I only tried Python 3.5.

Larry,

Have you installed the gettext library required by Intel Python3.5? You can find more information in the Known Issues document:

Thanks,

I've installed gettext through brew and the same error remains: "intelpython35-2017.0.007.app" is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the Trash.

Larry,

It appears to be an issue with GateKeeper.  Please run the following command in a terminal and try the installation again:

xattr -rc /path/to/<intelpython>.app

Let me know if this works for you.

I can confirm that the suggested fix does allow the installer to launch. Still does not find gettext even though it is on the path.

Hi Chris, Paul

xattr does fix the launch of the installer. Thank you.

If gettext is installed with brew, it's by default keg-only so you have to run "brew link --force gettext" to make symlinks in /usr/local to make the installer find it.
