Hi Antonis,

MLNX_OFED 4.9- was tested and certified with kernel 4.19.0-5-amd64.

Please try to compile the driver’s modules against the new kernel using the ‘–add-kernel-support’ flag.



Thanks Chen for your reply.

Even with --add-kernel-support we end up to the same error. It tries to install linux-headers-4.19.0-11-amd64 but cannot find it in the official repo. It seems that when the driver was made, the above header was active, but now it has been removed from the deb 10 repo.

One idea would be to install this header from snapshot repo but i dont know if it is a good idea
