Allow me to preface what I'm say with this: I develop primarily in Windows, not Unix or Mac. I know more than nothing (a little VI, basic commands, etc) but I am a solid Unix novice.
That being said, our department has a cluster of X-Server blades running Darwin that we are trying to get MKL working on. I got an evaluation copy of MKL for Linux that we have tried to install, but following the installation instructions stops working when running the install script (the install script can't find ldconfig, which isn't on Darwin). So, my question is as follows:
1. Am I even using the correct version of MKL?
2. How do I get MKL installed on this machine?
Remember, you are talking to a Unix novice, so please be patient, speak slowly, and use small words (so to speak). Thanks!
Potentially useful information:
uname -a gives the following-
Darwin portal2net 9.8.0 Darwin Kernel Version 9.8.0: Wed Jul 15 16:55:01 PDT 2009; root:xnu-1228.15.4~1/RELEASE_I386 i386
As I know, MKL has three different install packages:
- for Windows
- for Linux
- for OS X (Darwin and Snow Leopard)
Therefore, please use correct MKL install package
Linux installer does not support Darwin OS. It is not the only question of availability of system tools but also binary compatibility problem. So the Linux installer will not work at
Good news - the OS X version works! Apparently, there is an OS X interface to the cluster that I, as a user, do not have access to. Now that our sys admin has installed the library, I have successfully built and run the symmetric matrix Pardiso example using the icc compiler as well as the g++ compiler. Thanks for your help.
One thing I would note - I know it is mentioned a few places around Intel's site, but it created a little confusion for me having the liomp5 libraries in a location different than it is in the Windows and Linux version.
Just for your information, for Intel Compiler Professional Edition installation libiomp5 library placed in compiler 'lib' directory for all platforms. It is placed inside MKL 'lib' directory for standalone MKL package only. This kind of package doesn't exist for Mac OS. MKL for Mac OS can be installed only in bundle with Intel Compiler Professional Edition.

need to clarify one detail - the last standalone package for Mac OS* X is 10.0 Update 5. Since the version 10.1 version of MKL for MacOS* X disrtibute in bundle with Intel CPE.
