Solution for using Intel oneAPI on CentOS 6.x

I was using Intel Parallel Studio under student-related licences. After the last license expired, I knew the free suite becomes the Intel oneAPI. I am thankful and happy to use it.

However, the Operating System I am using is CentOS 6.6 which is running on clusters of our institution. I am aware that the newly introduced oneAPI requires newer CentOS version like CentOS 8. The problem is the Operating System on the clusters could not be upgraded.

So, I wonder is there any solution to enable using Intel oenAPI on older linux.

 

UPDATE

After I installed the Intel oneAPI, particularly the oneAPI Basekit and oneAPI HPCkit, I set the enviroment in shell by source setvars.sh. Then I tested it by issue a simple command ifort -V which gave the following complaints:

ifort: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by ifort)

 

I assumed it was a OS-incompatible issue, so installed the glibc-2.14 library as a non-system library and added the library path into the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable. Then the ifort -V command succeeded and printed out the following message:

Intel(R) C Intel(R) 64 Compiler XE for applications running on Intel(R) 64, Version 2021.4.0 Build 20210910_000000 
Copyright (C) 1985-2021 Intel Corporation.  All rights reserved.

 

Then I tried to compile a simple hello world program, the new error came out as

ld:<oneAPI>/compiler/2021.4.0/linux/bin/intel64/../../bin/intel64/../../lib/icx-lto.so: error loading plugin: <glibc-2.14>/lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.15' not found (required by <oneAPI>/compiler/2021.4.0/linux/bin/intel64/../../bin/intel64/../../lib/icx-lto.so)

 <oneAPI>: the installed directory of the Intel oneAPI

<glibc-2.14>: the installed directory of glibc-2.14

 

I having been attempting to work it out and appreciate further suggestions.

 

By the way, How can we add inline code in the community post?

Hi,

 

We can see that Intel oneAPI Base Toolkit supports CentOS versions 7&8 along with other OS versions. For more information refer to the below link.

Unfortunately, we couldn't provide any support for CentOS versions which are older than 7 &8.

 

Could you please let us know whether you have any other issues? If not, could you please confirm whether to close this issue from our end?

 

Thanks & Regards,
