Resolved Issues

  • INSTALL needs to create /etc/udev/rules.d/05-opa.rules
  • /etc/modules-load.d/rdma.conf should be managed by opa-scripts package
  • opa-scripts removes ARPTABLE_TUNING from /etc/rdma/rdma.conf after uninstallation, doesn't add it during install
  • Segmentation fault when using mvapich2 (verbs) with mixed Debian and RHEL/CentOS nodes
  • INSTALL needs to put MPI source packages in /usr/src/opa/MPI
  • Port opaconfig to Debian
  • Port opacapture and fm_capture to Debian
