download the compiler bundle to your laptop.

then look here http://supercomputing.iitd.ac.in/?access#outside

Looks like there may be the intel compiler 2015 version on that system.

What does   module  avail   give you?

Hi Gaurav,

You can download the product offline and copy the installer to the login node.

Since you don't have sudo access you can specify the location to install during installation.

For more information regarding installation, you go through the installation guide.

To use OpenMP along with intel compilers you just have to add  -qopenmp while compiling the code.

Ex: icc -qopenmp -c parallel.cpp

For more details along with an example please go through Adding OpenMP* Support to your Application.

Hi Gaurav,

Installing Xorg X11 libXss runtime library requires root access as they are display drivers.

You can opt for CLI install, in this case, the installer will not require the presence of OS GUI components such as Xorg X11 server.

As mentioned in Installation guide Section 3.6, the installation of some features of Vtune requires root access.

Can you skip the Vtune installation or is this problem stopping the product installation?

Let me know the status.

 

Regards

Prasanth

Dear Team

I enquired HPC IIT Delhi,  http://supercomputing.iitd.ac.in/ , for the same issue, they said, they provide access to intel parallel studio 2020 to their institute students, as its a licensed software

As I am also a student, but of different institute, so outsiders are having access to only open-source software,

since I am not able to install the software in my account because of above mentioned issue,  may I request them to use their institute license.

Hi Gaurav,

During installation after Configuration > Pre-install Summary step, you reach Installation target.

From here please select the options I mentioned:

1) Installation Target:
    Install on the current system only

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   1. Accept configuration and begin installation [ default ]
   2. Customize installation

Here select option 2 to customize the installation

2) 

Configuration > Architecture selection
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Select the target architecture(s) where the applications you develop will run.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   1.    IA-32
   2.    Intel(R) 64

   3. Finish architecture selection [ default ]
Here select the architecture whose components you want to install, or select 3 or press enter to install both(recommended)

3)

Review the configuration settings below. You can customize the settings or
accept them and begin installation now.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   1. Accept configuration and begin installation [ default ]

   2. Change install Directory      [ /home/sdp/intel ]
   3. Change components to install  [ All ]
   4. View pre-install summary

Here select option 3 and remove Vtune and any other components you don't need. [Hint: First unselect all component by pressing  a and select each component by giving their number in list as input]

I think this will solve the Xorg X11 libXss runtime library is not found issue.

Let me know the status.

 

Regards

Prasanth
