To download, configure, build, and install METIS, one may proceed as shown below.

wget --content-disposition --no-check-certificate
tar xvf metis-5.1.0.tar.gz
cd metis-5.1.0

wget --content-disposition --no-check-certificate
chmod +x
./ metis

Please make the intended compiler available on the command line. For instance, many HPC centers rely on module load.

source /opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries_2020.4.304/linux/bin/ intel64

For example, to configure and make for an Intel Xeon Scalable processor ("SKX"):

make distclean
make -j; make install
