Installing OFED on CentOS Stream 8.0

Hey All,

So I am having issues getting things installed on my server running a fresh copy of CentOS Stream 8. I am running a Mellanox Technologies MT27800 Family [ConnectX-5] Infiniband controller. Downloading the RHEL8.0 version of results in a distro check failure unless I force it. Taking any suggestions on how to get this built (even via source which seems to have no documentation).

[root@Moleskine MLNX_OFED_LINUX-5.2-]# ./mlnxofedinstall --distro rhel8.0 --add-kernel-support --without-fw-update

Note: This program will create MLNX_OFED_LINUX TGZ for rhel8.0 under /tmp/MLNX_OFED_LINUX-5.2- directory.

See log file /tmp/MLNX_OFED_LINUX-5.2-

Hello Joe,

Thank you for posting your inquiry on the NVIDIA Networking Community.

Unfortunately, currently we do not support MLNX_OFED for CentOS 8 Stream. We are currently reviewing this internally, and hope to provide a resolution and statement soon.

Thank you and regards,
