Mellanox OFED 4.7 Driver with DPDK support asks to uninstall the FIO package during installation.


During the installation of Mellanox OFED driver 4.7 with dpdk support it asks to uninstall the FIO package. After uninstalling FIO package, the driver is installed properly.

My concern is that we use FIO for our benchmarking in daily purpose. Is there any way that we can keep FIO and Mellanox OFED driver together without any conflict? And why does the driver ask to uninstall FIO ? Are there any dependencies or something?

After installing Mellanox driver using “./mlnxofedinstall --upstream-libs --dpdk –force” and then reinstalling FIO using “apt install fio” it works and no conflict seem so far.
