Are there any plans to include native support for Xeon Phi KNC?
Ideally, I am looking for a revamped RPM set with python/numpy/matplotlib that can be easily installed on the KNC.
Here is a workaround for the beta.
To use KNC from linux download and unpack this file:
Then set these environment variables:
MIC_LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<directory for unpacked files> MKL_MIC_ENABLE=1 # Optional. Fail if offload is not possible MKL_MIC_DISABLE_HOST_FALLBACK=1
We released a new version of Intel Python today. You no longer need the workaround from this note. Follow the directions here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/using-intel-python-with-coprocessor-cards

Ignore the text about free trial/buy while we fix up the new web page. Intel Python is no charge.
