Failure while installing MLNX_OFED_LINUX-5.3- on Ubuntu 18.04 w/ 5.4.0-71-generic (HWE) - perl issue?

error running install:

:~/MLNX_OFED_LINUX-5.3-$ sudo ./mlnxofedinstall

fileparse(): need a valid pathname at ./mlnxofedinstall line 46.

any help please? i have never run into this issue previously.


I guess it is a perl issue, because I cannot see any problematic code at line 46 in the install script.

Which version of perl do you use ?
