Patrik I have no idea why Intel would require SELinux in permissive mode
to install.  Actually it might have something to do with the exec* checks.

If you turned off the execmod and execstack check, the intel compiler
should be able to install without any problems.

# setsebool allow_execstack=1 allow_execmod=1

I would bet that it will work without you setting it to permissive mode,
but you can temporarily set it to permissive mode by executing

# setenforce 0

Then install the package.

# setenforce 1

Puts the machine back into enforcing mode.
