During the install of IG&L 7.1, the Intel Bug Check can fail. According to SUSE support this is because some third-party applications installed on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server require the 'Hardware Lock Elision' functionality to be disabled.
Below is a link to the knowledge article (7022289) with instructions on how to resolve it.
However, even once implemented as per this article, the IG&L prerequisites still fail on the CPU check. This is as a result of how the IG&L install checks for the fix.
Steps 1, 2 and 4 are those provided by SUSE (in the link above) to resolve the issue, however step 3 is also required to ensure the IG&L install checks will be successful.
- Create file - /etc/ld.so.conf.d/noelision.conf
- Add the following line to noelision.conf - /lib64/noelision
- Add /lib64/noelision to ld.so.conf (additional step for IG&L check)
- Run ldconfig
