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(R) Xeon Phi(TM) 7200 Series (Knights Landing) systems
operating system:  Linux 4.5.7-202.fc23.x86_64 (GNU C Library (GNU libc)
                   stable release version 2.22) and compatible
Fortran compiler:  Intel Fortran Compiler
                   version and compatible
OpenMP runtime:    Intel OpenMP Library, libiomp5 and compatible
vendor library:    Intel MKL version 11.3.3 and compatible

This implementation is not suitable for use on earlier generation Intel Xeon Phi processors or on regular Intel Xeon or compatible processors.

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.

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.

4. Problems with the Display of Mathematics in the NAG Library Manual
