beta08 install fails with "Fail to set active product"

When trying to install beta08 I get an error "Fail to set active product", and after exit a corrupted xterm where characters are not echoed to screen, requiring a reset of the terminal.

Fail to set active product.

the last line actually appears at the top of the terminal.

 

I was actually able to do the install correctly ONCE, but it got installed in /opt/intel/oneapi, as opposed to /opt/intel/inteloneapi where all the other releases went. I deleted the directory, and tried again, at which point all succeeding installs have failed.

After a little sleuthing, I see that there are some log files written to /tmp/leggett/intel_oneapi_installer/2020.08.06_10.11.44.424

(Why are these not in the local directory, or referenced in some way????)

in the installer.XXX.log file I see:

08/06/2020 10:11:46:770 : 030705 : ERROR : Product with id: 'intel.oneapi.lin.basekit.product', version: '2021.1-1970.beta08', language: '' is already installed, can't proceed to '1' mode.

 

but of course, this is wrong. it's not installed.

I also see it's writing stuff to /var/intel/installercache

Why is this not mentioned anywhere???

Removing this directory allowed the installation to proceed.

Note that the install created 30 directories in /tmp, but didn't clean them up. It also left 3.2 GB in /var/intel/install

Hi,


Can you please try deleting all the directories especially /opt/intel/oneapi and also the related directories created inside /tmp/... and again start the installation. It seems that you have not completely uninstalled the beta-08 toolkit from /opt/intel/oneapi directory.



Please note that the base toolkit beta-08 will get install in /opt/intel/oneapi directory. Whereas if you have beta-07 it will be in /opt/intel/inteloneapi (unless you haven't uninstall/removed from inteloneapi directory). The default path of the beta-08 toolkit has changed please refer to the below link for more details.

Do update us if you have any issues.



Warm Regards,

Abhishek

removing /opt/intel/oneapi and the multitude of directories the install created in in /tmp is insufficient. You need to remove the directories in /var/intel/installercache which are only mentioned in one of the log files which is hidden in /tmp.

Hi,

You will have to remove all the associated directories from /intel as well as /tmp (installer cache, package manager, and all associated files). And then try the installation it will work.


Please note the default install directory for the beta-08 toolkit is /opt/intel/oneapi
