Prerequisites

Consider the following important information before installing the Intel oneAPI packages.

System Requirements

Refer to the Release Notes and System Requirements documents to learn more about compatibility details.

IDE Integration

To use third-party IDE, install Eclipse* on your Linux* OS host system before installing oneAPI Toolkits. This allows you to integrate the plugins as part of the Intel oneAPI Base Toolkit installation.

Set Up Your System for Intel GPU

If you are using Intel GPU, complete the following steps before or after Intel oneAPI installation:
  • Check that you have fulfilled the requirements of Intel® Graphics Compute Runtime for oneAPI Level Zero and OpenCL™ Driver. Make sure that you have permissions to access the
    /dev/dri/renderD\*
    and
    /dev/dri/card\*
    files. This typically means that your user account is a member of the video (on Ubuntu* 18, Fedora* 30, and SLES* 15 SP1) or render (on Ubuntu* 19 and higher, CentOS* 8, and Fedora* 31) group. Alternatively, an administrator with sudo or root privilege can change the group owner of
    /dev/dri/renderD\*
    and
    /dev/dri/card\*
    to a group ID used by your user base.
  • If you have applications with long-running GPU compute workloads in native environments, you must disable the hangcheck timeout period to avoid terminating workloads.
  • If you plan to use the Intel® Distribution for GDB* on Linux* OS, make sure to configure debugger access.
