Compiling with Intel compiler is problematic - CDash with Intel?
I notice several difficulties when compiling with the Intel compilers 16.0.3 and 17.0.1:
I'm unable to compile vtk-m: it just hangs for 30+ minutes until I kill it whereas compilation with gcc is done within ~3 seconds per file;
Several warnings during compile in vtkParse.tab.c
The utility programs vtkHashSource and vtkkwProcessXML, when compiled with the Intel compiler, give a segfault when executed.
I'm running this on a Scientific Linux system.
The first problem is the most serious; it makes it impossible to compile e.g. ParaView that insists on using vtk-m these days.
The latter problem can be circumvented by copying existing gcc-compiled versions over the Intel-compiled versions.
Would it be an idea that you get a build machine as part of CDash that uses the Intel compilers? In that way, these problems can be caught early and dealt with.
