The version of Debian12 is too new for OFED .

The supported Debian versions with CX-3 Pro are:
Debian 9.9
Debian 9.6
Debian 9.11
Debian 8.9
Debian 8.11
Debian 10.0

Try to use lower Debian version.

By the way, ConnectX-3 Pro is an EOL production. So, no new feature will be added to support it. Driver won’t support new OS version.
