Mellanox ConnectX cards (VPI) and MLNX_OFED


Not sure if this qualifies as developer discussion, but has anyone managed to get Mellanox cards running under Clear?

I have a few hosts here, and was interested in using Clear as the OS for a simple KVM host. I can’t manage to get the ConnectX-4 cards up though. Without having a readily installable driver package (i.e. MLNX_OFED) it’s really hard to tell if it’s software or hardware issues.

I can see the mlx5_ib and mlx5_core drivers loaded under lsmod, but that’s about as far as I’m getting without access the usual Mellanox tools included in the driver package.

Has anyone already got this working by chance?
