CentOS 7.2 + MLNX_OFED 3.1-1 + MPSS 3.6.1

I'm trying to get mpss running on our centOS 7.2 cluster.

We're using kernel 3.10.0-327.4.4.el7.x86_64.

MLNX_OFED_LINUX-3.1-1.0.3.1 (OFED-3.1-1.0.3).

On Mellanox Technologies MT27500 Family [ConnectX-3] adapters.

Installation of both MOFED and mpss run flawlessly, except when I try to use them together.

So I can install mpss. Setup ethernet networking. Ssh from/to xeon phi. Run code on xeon phi, all without a problem problem.

I can install Mellanox ofed, use infiniband (ON THE HOST),(ibv_*_pingpong ) without problems. 

But when I try to build the rpm, step "4)" of section 3.6.8 of the mpss_user_guide.pdf I get build errors:

include/uapi/linux/types.h:4:23: fatal error: asm/types.h: No such file or directory

Did anyone successfully install a similar combination of software?

Thanks!

 

Best regards,

Geert

Hi Geert,

The User Guide just mentioned Mellanox* OFED 2.x. Therefore, you better try Mellanox* OFED 2.x, not Mellanox* OFED 3.x. However, Mellanox* OFED 2.x   just works with CentOS 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, 6.6 and 7.0.

Hi Loc N,

Thanks for your reply!

I've done the install/build now with the following:

distribution: Centos 7.0

kernel version: 3.10.0-123.el7.x86_64

mpss: 3.6.1

ofed: MLNX_OFED_LINUX-2.4-1.0.0

 

This combination is named in the user_guide so it should work... The build process breaks at the !!same!! point though!

include/uapi/linux/types.h:4:23: fatal error: asm/types.h: No such file or directory

The complete output of the command of step "4)" of section 3.6.8 of the mpss_user_guide.pdf is at http://pastebin.com/k5pX0C5Z

 

Best regards,

Geert

I reported the same kind of error in https://software.intel.com/en-us/comment/1858767#comment-1858767.

It looks like a bug in the MPSS 3.6.1 distribution regarding CentOS 7...

Hello,

I did try this combination on my RHEL system: RHEL 6.6 (kernel 2.6.32-504), MPSS 3.6.1 and MLNX_OFED_LINUX_2.4-1.04. I followed the instructions in the readme file and the MPSS User Guide and was able to compile dalp, libscif, ofed-driver successfully. Everything worked as expected.

I will try with CentOS 7.0 and let you know if I can see the problem.

Thanks

Hi Geert and Alex,

I was able to reproduce the issue that Geert reported.

I installed RHEL 7.0, MPSS 3.6.1 successfully. Then I downloaded MLNX_OFED_LINUX_2.4-1.04 for RHEL 7.0. Following the instructions in the MPSS User Guide Section 3.6.8, I did complete steps 1, 2 and 3. But I failed to recompile ofed-driver as mentioned in step 4. I saw the same error that Geert reported.

This issue is been reported internally (ID: MPSS3-1392). Thank you very much.

Just for update, this issue (ID: MPSS3-1392) is solved in MPSS 3.7 . MPSS 3.7 should work with MLNX 2.4 . Thank you.
