Some comments
For those who want to install Intel MPI:
1. First download and decompress the file as kris.keipert mentioned:
tar -zxvf l_mpi_2018.0.128.tgz
cd l_mpi_2018.0.128/rpm
for f in *.rpm; do bsdtar -xf $f; done
cp -r ./opt /opt
2. Change some enviromental variables:
ln -s /opt/intel/advisor_2018.1.0.523188 /opt/intel/advisor_2018
ln -s /opt/intel/inspector_2018.1.0.522981 /opt/intel/inspector_2018
ln -s /opt/intel/vtune_amplifier_2018.0.2.525261 /opt/intel/vtune_amplifier_2018
ln -s /opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries_2018.0.128 /opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries_2018

cd /opt/intel/parallel_studio_xe_2018.0.033/
sed -i 's|SCRIPTPATH=\%.*|SCRIPTPATH=/opt/intel|' *.sh
sed -i 's|SCRIPTPATH=\%.*|SCRIPTPATH=/opt/intel|' *.csh
cp ./bin/
cp psxevars.csh ./bin/

cd /opt/intel/composerxe/linux/bin/
sed -i 's|PROD_DIR=.*|PROD_DIR="/opt/intel/composerxe/linux"|' *.sh
sed -i 's|PROD_DIR=.*|PROD_DIR="/opt/intel/composerxe/linux"|' *.csh

cd /opt/intel/composerxe/linux/mpi/intel64/bin
sed -i 's|I_MPI_ROOT=.*;|I_MPI_ROOT=/opt/intel/composerxe/linux/mpi;|'
"For csh, I'm not sure how to use sed"
3. Once finished, you can excute:
source /opt/intel/parallel_studio_xe_2018.0.033/ intel64
to set enviromental variables. You can test mpi by using mpiicc to compile a mpi code and use mpirun to test running

For those who have the current package installed and want to add on MPI from the cluster edition:

Download MPI from
Run 'bsdtar -xf' on all RPMs
Copy the extracted opt folder to /
Edit the I_MPI_ROOT definition in to point to /opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries_2018.0.128/linux/mpi

I got the same error in compiling r-mkl (AUR).

alexanderp commented on 2017-09-26 17:24


intel-tbb.conf should be modified as such:


About the compiling problem, I'm having trouble compiling r-mkl (AUR).
It fails at the configure stage with:

checking whether mixed C/Fortran code can be run... configure: WARNING: cannot run mixed C/Fortran code
configure: error: Maybe check LDFLAGS for paths to Fortran libraries?

The PATH variable has nothing to do with this packages, you define it yourself.


You are right, now the cluster version finally works and I will fix the mpi wrappers asap

After install in my PATH environment variables incorrect paths:


AidanGG commented on 2017-09-22 14:09

I might be wrong, but is the cluster edition not hosted here:

About the version number, it is only for this global arch package, it seems like it was 18.0.4 for the update4 in 2017, but changed at intel to 18.0 now, so I will just leave it with 18.0.4 for now so that the pacman database doesnt cry.

Will update this as soon as intel releases newer C version of course.

I have removed the fortran conflicting files so now it should be more smooth to install. Let me know if it doesnt work for anyone.

fishstamp82 commented on 2017-09-21 17:43

@alexanderp what issues do you have when compiling? I test compiled simple stuff and it worked, are you using mpi by any chance?

Also the intel-tbb.conf generated in the install dirs points to the correct path you are mentioning, to mee, in what exact file do you want to change that path? in the template?

alexanderp commented on 2017-09-20 08:48

intel-tbb.conf needs updating. The correct path is:


Also, I cannot compile software anymore with icc/icpc/ifort!
