MPSS 3.8.4 modules for CentOS 7.5

MPSS 3.8.4 modules for CentOS 7.5

Hi all,

I've created an RPM and SRPM of the mpss 3.8.4 mpss-modules file to allow you to use your KNC Xeon Phi's on CentOS 7.5. The resulting files can be found here:

https://www.nikhef.nl/~janjust/mpss

or simply install the RPM using

rpm -Uvh https://www.nikhef.nl/~janjust/mpss/mpss-modules-3.10.0-862.el7.x86_64-3.8.4-1.x86_64.rpm

This works fine on my CentOS 7.5 box, but of course, use at your own risk and rattle your local Intel rep for an official update.

share and enjoy,

JJK

Hi JJK,

I jave installed centos 7.5 and mpss 3.8.4 and applied your rpm but it couldn't use the card and i have some error like this "Region 0: Memory at (64-bit, prefetchable)[disabled]".

Are doing some patchs to the kernel before?

 

Regards

 

 

I'm only seeingthis post now, sorry about that...

The error you are seeing seems related to the infamous "Above 4 GB encoding" setting in your BIOS -f if the kernel does cannot find the memory space for the MIC card it will never boot, no matter what version of the OS. Or did it work with CentOS 7.4 , and did it stop working with 7.5 ?
