Unable to compile i40e driver 2.17.4 on CentOS 8

Dear Intel,

 

I tried to compile i40e driver v2.17.4 on clean CentOS 8, but I got an error below.

This kind of compile error didn't happen before with CentOS 7.

Would you please advise me on how to fix it?

Hello MPark,


Thank you for posting on Intel Ethernet Communities. 


We would like to know if you are using a discreet network adapter on your system? If you are, can we request a photo of the markings both front and back of the card so we can determine if this is a genuine intel or a 3rd party OEM adapter. 


If you're not using any network adapter, please provide us the exact model of your mother board instead.


If you have questions or other clarifications please let us know so we can help you further


Awaiting to hear from you soon, should there be no response from you, I’ll make sure to reach out after 3 business days. Thank you and have a nice day!



Best regards,

Zigfreid I.

Hello Zigfreid,

 

I am a FAE of one of Intel sales distributers in Korea.

I created this ticket for one of my customers who built their own Network Interface Card using Intel XL710-BM1/BM2.

 

This issue is not related with hardware. It's an error when compiling XL710-BM1/BM2 driver.

If we compile i40e driver v2.17.4 on CentOS 7 (kernel 3.10.0, gcc 4.8.5), the reported problem didn't happen.

If we compile the driver on CentOS 8 (kernel 4.18.0, gcc 8.5), the error happened.

We don't need to connect XL710 NIC to the host to reproduce this issue.

 

Best Regards,

Michael Park
