Uninstall OneAPI after failed install (Linux)

My installation of the OneAPI Base Toolkit was interrupted. I deleted the directory it was installing to (probably a mistake...). Now any attempt to either repair or uninstall it via the installer just hangs. Can I manually purge it completely, so I can start from scratch? Where is the information about installed packages stored?

Hi Herbert, manual removal of the installation folder (not recommended) does not uninstall the oneAPI toolkits completely. Incorrect uninstallation may block future installations. If you still need to remove the toolkit manually, make sure to clean up the system correctly and remove the following:

  • Installation folder
  • Installer cache, located at /var/intel/installercache/* (root) or <user home>/intel/installercache/* (user), including:
  1. packages cache at /var/intel/installercache/packagescache (root) or <user home>/intel/installercache/packagescache (user)
  2. download cache at /var/intel/installercache/downloadcache/ (root) or <user home>/intel/installercache/downloadcache (user)
  3. (Optional) package manager database /var/intel/packagemanager.db (root) or <user home>/intel/packagemanager.db (user)
  • Installer and package manager executables, located at /opt/intel/oneapi/installer/ (root) or <user home>/intel/oneapi/installer/ (user) and /opt/intel/packagemanager/ (root) or <user home>/intel/packagemanager/ (user), respectively.
