Installation of Intel Compiler 11.1.059 under Linux Mint 19.1 fails

Hi everybody,

I had to upgrade my Linux Mint from version 17.3 to version 19.1 as the first reached its end of life.

Under the new Linux Mint 19.1 I need now to reinstall my 'old' Intel compiler suite version 11.1.059. Unfortunately the installation process fails almost immediately.

Here follows the step I'm taking:

valerio@giusti-147:~/Downloads/l_cprof_p_11.1.059_intel64$ sudo ./install.sh
[sudo] password for valerio: **********

./install.sh: line 465: 14191 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) $pset_engine_binary --log-file=$log_file $silent_params $duplicate_params $params --PACKAGE_DIR=$fullpath

Echoing the failing command in the install.sh file I get the following:

/home/valerio/Downloads/l_cprof_p_11.1.059_intel64/./pset/32e/install.32e --log-file=/tmp/intel.pset.root.giusti-147_06.06.00.02.21.2019.log --PACKAGE_DIR=/home/valerio/Downloads/l_cprof_p_11.1.059_intel64/.

As it concerns my system, the command 'uname -a' returns the following information:

valerio@giusti-147:~/Downloads/l_cprof_p_11.1.059_intel64$ uname -a
Linux giusti-147 4.15.0-51-generic #55-Ubuntu SMP Wed May 15 14:27:21 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Any idea of what can be the problem?

For your information I can add that on my desktop, after upgrading the operating system from LMDE2 to LMDE3, I have been able to install the compilers without problems.

Thanks in advance

Valerio

Based on experience with Linux installs, I'd guess that the new Linux version has an updated glibc shared library that is incompatible with the old compiler installer. Whether that's due to an installer bug that didn't get exercised or something else, I couldn't say. I do know that new Linux versions and distros were an ongoing sore point for compiler installs due to frequent incompatible changes in the environment - only MacOS was worse in this regard.

I'm not a Linux expert, but maybe you can extract the glibc .so files from the older distro and modify the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to point to that first, then try the installer again. Otherwise you may be out of luck - obviously that old installer version wasn't tested against a Linux distro/version that didn't exist at the time.

If that doesn't work, then upgrading to a newer compiler version that supports your Linux version may be the only choice.  But see if http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-compilers-for-linux-and-mac-os-x-compiler-installation-help has any hints that may help.

Hi Steve,

thanks for the suggestions.

I looked at the link and I followed the instructions therein. Furthermore, I tried to run the install.sh file linking the commands g++, gcc, gcc-ar, gcc-nm and gcc-ranlib to different versions of the glibc library, namely 4.8, 6.5 and 7.4.

Unfortunately, after accepting the license agreement, I always got the same error:

./install.sh: line 465: 24053 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) $pset_engine_binary --log-file=$log_file $silent_params $duplicate_params $params --PACKAGE_DIR=$fullpath

I'm fully aware that what I'm facing is something that soon or later it had to happen, ...I hoped later.

Thanks for your help

Valerio

It may be helpful if you could display the contents of line 465 (and, perhaps, a few more lines in that neighborhood) of install.sh.

That's right. Sorry if I did no do that.

Here below it comes the last part of the install.sh file from line 386 to the end (line 482). The offending line is the number 80. The full install.sh file is attache to the post.

if [ "$UID" -ne 0 ]; then

    if [ "$skip_uid_check" != "yes" ]; then

## CD Eject Issue

if [ -f "$fullpath"/cd_eject.sh ]; then
