Hi, in the other thread, it was mentioned that the latest BF2 image comes with DOCA install by default. However, it seems, that version is actually older than the current one installed on my Bluefield-2 (that does not have the DOCA installed). How can this be possible?
And, indeed there is no
doca directory in
/opt/mellanox, which means no DOCA support by default (?).
My current Bluefield-2 OS is:
ubuntu@localhost:~$ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Release: 20.04 Codename: focal ubuntu@localhost:~$ uname -a Linux localhost.localdomain 5.4.44-mlnx.9.gdffcb36f52b7 #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jul 7 02:43:36 IDT 2020 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux
The important part here is the 5.4.44-mlnx version number (or at least, I think it is the version number). Though, it is stated as mlnx not BlueOS/Bluefield
The one I can download:
has a version number 5.3 in its filename.
After installing this “latest” version, and issuing the same commands, we can indeed see a lower/smaller version number:
root@localhost:/home/ubuntu# uname -a Linux localhost.localdomain 5.4.0-1008-bluefield #11-Ubuntu SMP PREEMPT Fri Mar 5 13:59:26 UTC 2021 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux
The version string here is not mlnx but Bluefield. Is it possible then these versionings are different that’s why I see lower version number?
