I'd like to give the Intel Distribution a go on our Xeon PHI cluster which uses easybuild modules for setting up the user spaces. Is there an easybuild script available already or do I have to write my own one?
We have not written an easybuild script.
I see that there is some support for conda https://github.com/hpcugent/easybuild-easyblocks/blob/master/easybuild/easyblocks/generic/conda.py
and you can install intel python with conda: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/using-intel-distribution-for-python-with-anaconda
It looks like the script has support for channels and specific packages so would need easybuild to do this:
conda install -c intel intelpython3_full
Please let us if you get it to work.
