Hi, New to the Mellanox community and trying to figure out my way around after using another vendors cards for the last few years.
I have a mxc311a-xcat single port 10g card. Ubuntu 13.04 seems to come out of the box with drivers that work with the card:
ethtool -i p6p1
version: 2.0 (Dec 2011)
Is this the latest driver for the card?
I tried downloading mlnx-en-2.0-3.0.0.tgz but after installing some dependencies:
apt-get install dpkg-dev autotools-dev dkms debhelper zlib1g-dev rpm
success was reported but I didn’t find any new .ko modules. Is that to be expected?
Thanks. – Bud
I have reviewed the supported OS in the EN driver, and Ubuntu is not supported, you can see the full list:
Mellanox Technologies http://www.mellanox.com/page/osv_support_eth
Mellanox OFED supports Ubuntu 12.04, I noticed you’re using 13.04, so recommend waiting for new release.
Mellanox OFED version 2.1-3.0.0 should be released by the end of the month, can’t guarantee that, it might be delayed.
