CentOS 7.3 fail to build ofed-mic with MPSS-3.8.1

Dear all,

I am trouble installing ofed-mic in CentOS 7.3 with default kernel. 

Linux node09 3.10.0-514.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Nov 22 16:42:41 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I did my best to follow the installation steps in the MPSS 3.8.1 user guide and the Phi is working okay.

[root@node09 disc]# micctrl --status
mic0: online (mode: linux image: /usr/share/mpss/boot/bzImage-knightscorner)

I can also ssh to mic0 and back to the host by following this page https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/544138

Now, I would like to setup the OFED support on the Phi, but I found no solution so far. As suggested by the user guide, it works with OFED-3.18.2 and Mellanox MLNX-OFED 2.4.

http://registrationcenter-download.intel.com/akdlm/irc_nas/11194/mpss_users_guide.pdf

But, when I tried to compile OFED-3.18.2, it produced errors on

/var/tmp/OFED_topdir/BUILD/compat-rdma-3.18/include/linux/compat-3.16.h:25:19: error: redefinition of 'ktime_get_ns'

When I tried on MLNX-OFED 2.4, it said my OS is not supported. So, I tried the MLNX-OFED 3.4, but as I rebuild the rpms, it failed with 

/root/rpmbuild/BUILD/ofed-driver/drivers/infiniband/ibp/cm/cm_server_msg.c:986:19: error: 'IB_QP_SMAC' undeclared (first use in this function)

So, I cannot enable ofed-mic service in my node.

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Rolly

Hi Rolly,

I am able to reproduce the problem you saw when installing OFED-3.18-2 on a host system running RHEL 7.3.and MPSS 3.8.1 . Let me check with a MPSS/OFED expert here. I will get back to you.

Thanks

Hello Nguyen,

Thanks for your attention.

I can confirm that CentOS 7.1 works fine with OFED-3.18.2 and MPSS 3.8.1.

I will plugin the infiniband cables and check the status again.

Hi Rolly,

According to OFED-3.18-2 release notes (OFED-3.18-2/docs/OFED_release_notes.txt), this OFED version supports RHEL 6.5, 6.6, 6.7, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, SLES 11 SP3 and SP4, SLES 12 and 12.1 only.

RHEL 7.3/CentOS 7.3 are fairly recent, and they are not supported by OFED-3.18-2. But CentOS 7.1 should work with OFED-3.18.2.

Thanks
