I try to download the MPI from the non-commertial product,
but I cant found its page (I know that the commertials is in the menu/softwer products)
Could anybody help me?
tanks in advance
We generally recommend that you uninstall any of the Intel Software Tools (e.g. compilers, or the Intel MPI Library) using the provided uninstall scripts, rather than deleting the directory. That would allow the installer to clean up your system properly and prevent issues like this.
But, no worries! We'll certainly get it fixed :)
Since the install directory (and the uninstall scripts) are gone, we might have to do some manual manipulations. During each install, the installer would check a .db file for the presence of any existing tools. That's probably where this error is coming from. Can you check your home directory for the following file?:
[user@cluster:~]> ls intel/*.db
Now, you can either delete the file, rename the file (e.g. intel_sdp_products.db.bak), or edit the file. If you decide to edit it, search and delete any lines that contain "4.0.3p" or "compiler". As you can guess, this file would be updated during both the installation and uninstallation processes.
Now re-try your installation and let me know how it goes. I look forward to hearing back soon.
Where were the software tools installed? Were they under /opt/intel, /home/user/intel, or somewhere else? The .db file will be created under your home directory, or under the root home directory (if installating as root).
You can also try using the 'find' or 'locate' tools, if you have them available on your system. Example:
$ locate intel_sdp_products.db
Have you tried the 'locate' or 'find' tools to see if the file was created somewhere else?
I tried to recreate your issue by doing an install, deleting the entire intel/ directory, then running another install but did not see the error you showed above ("Another instance of the installer has been detected. Please complete the other install and try again"). Is it possible you have a zombie process that's taking up resources? Please try running "ps aux | grep

also I did this command
[user41@ce l_fcompxe_intel64_2011.8.273]$ uninstall_idb.sh
The uninstallation program did not find any instance of
Intel Compiler Professional 11.0 products or components
for this package installed by this non-root user.
If you performed any installation using root, you must become root
to do the uninstallation.
my problem is solved :)
Ihad erased /tmp/intel.* and all problems solved
those erased was :
# User specific aliases and functions
# Source global definitions
if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
source $HOME/intel/composer_xe_2011_sp1.8.273/bin/compilervars.sh intel64
[bash]source $HOME/intel/impi/4.0.3.008/bin64/mpivars.sh[/bash]This willset the appropriateenvironment variablesfor the Intel MPI Library. These are done separately from the compiler environment variables.
