Intel Fortran Compiler - glibc dependencies bad


Hi All,

I'm trying to get the Intel Fortran compiler installed. I'm running Slackware 9.0. I have the latest version of the compiler (xx.xx.034), which requires glibc 2.3.2. I installed the glibc 2.3.2 rpm with no problems. When I try and install the compiler, I get about 10 or 12 dependency errors, on things like libc.so.6 and so on, e.g.

libc.so.6 is needed by intel-ifc7-7.1-34 .

Anyone seen this kind of problem before? The file libc.so.6 is in the /lib directory, and KPackage says it's installed correctly, so am I doing something dumb? Do the libs have to be somewhere other than /lib?

Damien

Oops. Meant to post here to say I'd fixed it. I upgraded to SW 9.1 after accidentally trashing half my libs when I built the latest glibc stuff.

To get the Intel Fortran Compiler installed, you need to add --nodeps to the rpm configuration. You get asked for rpm options during the installation. The IFC is developed for RedHat, which has specific signatures, or suffixes on the glibc stuff which Slackware doesn't have. The compiler will still work if you install with the --nodeps. I just built LAPACK and SCALAPACK and they run their test sets happily.
