Problem setting up the environment using modulefiles


Dear All,


On a fresh system (Rocky Linux 8.8) I installed the HPC Toolkist (as local root user):




The installation program ran successfully, afterwards I created the modulefiles using this command:


cd /opt/intel/oneapi/
./ --output-dir=/opt/modulefiles/intel


This script gave the following output:


:: Initializing oneAPI modulefiles folder ...
:: Removing any previous oneAPI modulefiles folder content.
:: Generating oneAPI modulefiles folder links.

Unfortunately multiple problems occur:

1.) I cannot determine the modulefile containing the icc compiler. I would expect there should be a module called "compiler" or similar, but as you can see above, there is none.
2.) The paths inside the created modulefiles are wrong, e.g.


module use /opt/modulefiles/intel
module add mpi/latest
which mpicc
/usr/bin/which: no mpicc in (/opt/intel/oneapi/mpi/intel64/libfabric/bin:/opt/intel/oneapi/mpi/intel64/bin:/usr/share/Modules/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/opt/pbs/bin:/opt/pbs/sbin:/root/bin)
echo $PATH


As you can see two mpi-paths are added to the environment:




Both of them do not exist, because the correct path should be:




I would be very grateful if someone could help me with this problem.

Could it be that the modulefiles and/or the are not updated to incorporate the current directory structure obtained from the installer.


Thank you!
