I’ve purchased and installed a couple of these

So far after installing the default packages in debian wheeze they seem to be running ok .

I seem to be running firmware 2.6.0 … Is it Obsolete? Do I need to upgrade.
What version of OFED for debian wheezy do I need to download from OpenFabrics.org OR Mellanox ??
There Seem to be a zillion Versions.
I’ ve installed opensm from debian wheezy repo
Plus a few other packages required in debian.
Will the ofed dist from openfabrics conflict with the debian onces ??
Will the ofer dist will create and install .debs ??
Sorry for this but I am indeed very new to inifiniband stuff …
Cheers and thanks in advance
