Thread: Update Intel Parallel Studio

  1. #1

    Default Update Intel Parallel Studio

    I have the commercial Intel Parallel Studio Cluster Edition installed. The software has no official SUSE support.

    On the factory mailing list I was adviced to install a rpm repository.

    I copied the rpms to a directory and added this as repository
    URL: dir:///opt/intel_rpm_repository/parallel_studio_xe_2018_cluster_edition/rpm
    Category: YUM

    Since then I can do smoothly do zypper dup which had issues when I was installing the Intel software by the Intel install script.

    Now there is a new Parallel Studio Cluster Edition available, hopefully icpc fixed it's incompatibility with gcc 7.2's header files.

    What is the best way to update?
    * copy the new rpms to the rpm dir and do zypper dup? What is with the old rpm's
    * create a new prm repo? But how to switch?

    There are 187 rpms with 3.6GB in the repodir.

    Thanks!

    I'd put the rpms in the local repo, and keep the older ones there to be able to downgrade to a previous version.
    Before doing so, I would backup everything related to this software.
