Intel Development Tools on Debian & Debian Derived Linux Distributions

If you have an interest in being able to run the Intel developer tools (( the C & Fortran compilers, Vtune, etc )) under Debian or a Debian derived distribution such as Ubuntu then please sign up and make your views known on the Intel instigated poll on their forums, please!

At the moment they only support RPM based distributions (mainly RHEL and SLES) and whilst you can get the compilers going through some documented hacks getting Vtune to install is a real pain – the only way I’ve heard so far is this hack that involves having a machine running one of those distros to hand.

Intel make these tools available to people doing development on projects for no recompense (but be sure to read their FAQ on who does and doesn’t qualify).
