We have a conda environment using the Intel conda channel.  With tensorflow version 1.9.0-py36_0 we get:

$ python
Python 3.6.3 |Intel Corporation| (default, May  4 2018, 04:22:28)
[GCC 4.8.2 20140120 (Red Hat 4.8.2-15)] on linux

>>> import tensorflow

It appears that the tensorflow package was built on a newer version of Linux?  Can this be fixed please?

It appears that this was fixed with version 1.11.0 and later.
