I have some weird difficulty in reinstalling
the newer compiler 6.0-5 onto an existing x86-64
installation of PGI CDK with 6.0-2 compiler.
As described in the installation notes,
I untar the downloaded file in some /tmp
directory, then I specify the actual installation
directory to the install script (running as root).
Unfortunately, the script stops with the following error:
Installation directory? [/usr/pgi] /Software/opt/pgi ERROR: cannot install products in same directory as unpacked ftp tarfile Exiting...
Looking at the checks performed by the install script,
it appears that comparisons with $PGI/common
subdirs are made, although I do not feel confortable
in modifying the script myself.
Any hint regarding what to do ? Workarounds ?
