On this page:
this link is stating both RH and Ubuntu :
- OpenCL™ Runtime 16.1.2 for Intel® Core™ and Intel® Xeon® Processors for Red Hat* and Ubuntu* Linux* (64-bit)
but the installer opencl_runtime_16.1.2_x64_rh_22.214.171.124
is not compatible with Ubuntu :
Detected operating system is not supported. Supported operating systems for this release are:
CentOS* 7 (Intel(R) 64), 7 (Intel(R) 64)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux* 7 (Intel(R) 64), 6.5 (Intel(R) 64), 6.6 (Intel(R) 64)
Thanks for the write up and sharing your concern.
Compatible and supported have two different meanings in the context of opencl runtimes matching a particular platform. Centos is an actively supported target, while we still expect Ubuntu 16.04.x to function.
The package you refer to deploys successfully on my Ubuntu 16.04.4 system into /opt/intel/opencl-1.2-126.96.36.199/ .

Please give it a shot and let me know in this thread if there is any more blocking issue.
