Install on Ubuntu


I have installed PGI workstation complete on a Dell Opteron server running Ubuntu Linux:
uname -a
Linux 2.6.24-19-server #1 SMP Fri Jul 11 21:50:43 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I just wanted to summarize changes necessary to install:

  1. Make /bin/sh link to /bin/bash

  2. Make an executable script at /usr/bin/arch:
    uname -m

  3. Create a link to tmp for lmgrd:
    ln -s /tmp /usr/tmp

– I had to start lmgrd by hand. Should this be started automatically?


Further notes for the amd64-Ubuntu install:

  1. To make pgprof work, I had to install the
    package with synaptic. It runs with this, but it does throw a long string of errors at startup related to “Locking assertion failure”.

  2. To boot the license manager automatically, I put a call to “lmgrd.rc start” in /etc/rc.local. Note: the full path to lmgrd.rc is required.
