NAG Fortran Library, Mark 26

FLL6I26DCL - License Managed

Linux 64 (Intel 64 / AMD64), Intel Fortran, Double Precision, 32-bit integers

Supplementary Information


1. Introduction

This page is for supplementary information relating to the implementation described in Section 2.1 of the Installer's Note. It may be augmented over the life-time of the product if further pertinent information becomes available.

2. Applicability

This implementation is considered suitable for operation on the computer systems detailed below:
hardware:          Intel 64 systems and compatible (including AMD64)
operating system:  Linux (glibc-2.7-2) and compatible
Fortran compiler:  Intel Fortran Compiler
                   Version 20160415 and compatible

The distribution for this Library has been updated (July 2017) to avoid a clash between one of the Intel runtime libraries originally shipped with the product and some of the newer Linux distributions. If you experience problems with the NAG Library (i.e. crashes when using the NAG shared libraries) when moving to a newer operating system, please either download and install the latest NAG Library distribution or replace the file in the [INSTALL_DIR]/rtl/intel64 directory with one from an Intel 2017 distribution (where [INSTALL_DIR] is the directory in which the NAG Library has been installed). The NAG static libraries are unaffected.

With newer versions of the Intel compiler (ifort 17.x and newer), you may need to modify the link command used by the nag_example_shar_mkl script to replace the line

flink="${nagldir}/ -L${mkldir} -lmkl_intel_lp64 -lmkl_intel_thread -lmkl_core -L${nagdir}/rtl/intel64 -liomp5 -lpthread -lm -ldl"
by the line
flink="${nagldir}/ -L${mkldir} -lmkl_intel_lp64 -lmkl_intel_thread -lmkl_core -liomp5 -lpthread -lm -ldl"
i.e. remove the text "-L${nagdir}/rtl/intel64" from the flink line.

3. Test Platforms

This implementation has been successfully tested using the following:

Note: This list is not exhaustive; other combinations of hardware, operating system and compiler may also work.
