Issues with updating kernel with OFED installed - AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'make_report_file'

Hello,

My environment:

  • Ubuntu 14.04 with kernel linux-image-4.2.0-27-generic

  • OFED 3.2-2.0.0.0

During installation of linux kernel > 4.2.0-27 DKMS reports errors.

Setting up linux-image-4.2.0-30-generic (4.2.0-30.36~14.04.1) …

Running depmod.

update-initramfs: deferring update (hook will be called later)

Examining /etc/kernel/postinst.d.

: Unable to find an initial ram disk that I know how to handle.

Will not try to make an initrd.

When there is no OFED package in the system all goes fine.

Prior to linux image 4.2.0-27 updates was successful too.

Hello,

Uninstall OFED => update kernel => install OFED.
