I see it is not officially supported, is anyone able to get ofed running on 19.10?

i get as far as:

Installing new packages

Installing ofed-scripts-4.7…

Installing mlnx-ofed-kernel-utils-4.7…

Installing mlnx-ofed-kernel-dkms-4.7…

Failed to install mlnx-ofed-kernel-dkms DEB

Hello Grant,

Many thanks for posting your question on the Mellanox Community.

As you stated, currently we do not support Ubuntu 19.10. In the next release of Mellanox OFED, Ubuntu 19.10 will be supported.

We did a quick test in the lab. As of now, we were not able to successfully rebuild the drivers for Ubuntu 19.10 even with the options ’ --without-dkms --force --distro ubuntu19.10 --add-kernel-support’

But you can use the Mellanox modules provided by the distribution (INBOX Drivers) without any issues.

Many thanks,
