So I am attempting to install MLNX_OFED_LINUX-5.8-184.108.40.206 drivers onto my RHEL 8.8 machine.
Kernel Version: 4.18.0-477.21.1.el8_8.x86_64
I first tried. ./mlnxofedinstall
then tried ./mlnxofedinstall --add-kernel-support --force --skip-repo --distro rhel8.8
That also failed with these results
“Failed to build OFED-Scripts 5.8RPM”
“Unpacking of archive OFED-Scripts cpio:Digest Mismatch”
“OFED-Scripts src.rpm cannot be installed”
I get the same results as above when I try to run ./mlnx_add_kernel_support.sh --t /tmp/mlnx_ofed_build --make-tgz --mlnx_ofed /tmp/MLNX_OFED
/tmp/MLNX_OFED/ contains the untarred driver directory.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Not sure if I am doing something incorrectly or if I have a wrong kernel version. The documentation is 404’d for 5.8-220.127.116.11. I was following this guide for a reference as well. https://www.rdmamojo.com/2014/11/30/working-rdma-using-ofed/
