Default installation

The default installation installs the compiler to a default location. You are recommended to use the default installation procedure.

IBM XL C/C++ for Linux provides a utility, install, that performs a default installation of IBM® XL C/C++ for Linux, V16.1.1 and its dependencies. You can use install to install the RPM packages on SLES, RHEL, or CentOS, or install the dpkg packages on Ubuntu.

During the installation with the install utility, you are prompted to accept or decline the license agreement. If you accept the agreement, the license files will be output to .txt files for your future reference. If you decline the agreement, the installation process will exit; the compiler will remain unconfigured, and will not be usable.

Alternatively, you can use the system default package manager to install the packages. For example, you can use the rpm utility to install the RPM packages on SLES, RHEL, or CentOS, or you can use the dpkg utility to install the dpkg packages on Ubuntu.

If you are installing the compiler to a nondefault location, use the procedures in Nondefault installation.
