Unable to use intelpython3_full 2023.2.0 for Linux on Rhel 7 due to glibc version requirement


We are developing software that must be able to run on rhel/centos7.  For the first time, I'm blocked from doing this due to a glibc version requirement that is in intelpython3_full 2023.2.0, but not intelpython3_full 2023.1.0 *or* intelpython3_core 2023.2.0.  

Was this loss of compatibility unintentional or planned?  In either case, will a future version of intelpython3_full 2023 restore compatibility with rhel/centos7?


The specific error i'm getting (and I'm using mamba to install) is ....

mamba create -n intelpython -c intel intelpython3_full=2023.2.0 python=3.9 -y

which results in : 

Looking for: ['intelpython3_full=2023.2.0', 'python=3.9']

Could not solve for environment specs
The following package could not be installed
└─ intelpython3_full 2023.2.0** is uninstallable because it requires
├─ dpctl 0.14.5 py38he78b74f_24, which requires
│ └─ __glibc >=2.28,<3.0.a0 , which is missing on the system;
└─ dpnp [0.12.1 py310hd01b3e2_157|0.12.1 py39hd01b3e2_157], which requires
└─ __glibc >=2.28,<3.0.a0 , which is missing on the system.
