Description Adam Tygart 2016-12-05 16:42:59 UTC
The current stable release (per the openfabrics alliance) is 3.18-2 and was released in July. In particular the new libfabric library and the updates to mlx4 and mlx5 drivers would be nice. Reproducible: Always

The whole IB system seems to be in need of a lot of work. According to https://www.openfabrics.org/downloads/verbs/ A lot of the libraries have been consolidated in https://github.com/linux-rdma/rdma-core

rdma-core itself is there https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git/commit/?id=9b83bcf936bc5b844cf785979dc631940d147a7d
Comment 3 Timo Rothenpieler 2019-09-08 11:20:52 UTC
Is there a particular reason you removed all the special handling to enable proper PYTHON_TARGETS support? Also, why is it moved to sys-cluster from sys-fabric? This is for InfiniBand support, so sys-fabric seems way more fitting to me, specially as all the packages it replaces are there.

Hi, there is no really special python support, so standard eclass is more than enough to handle all the python-ish stuff. As for a category, alexxy (who is the original supporter) and I have discussed this privately and decided to drop sys-fabric as a category once rdma-core is stable, because only few package are going to be left in the there otherwise, I will pull the rest out soonish and last-rite the whole sys-fabric/* as well (along with openib eclass).
