First sorry for this late response regarding ehca build test in OFED 1.1
1) The userspace lib dir for libehca contains only a few c-files, but no
On svn dir branches/1.1/src/userspace/libehca/src/ I saw all files needed.
this for rc4!
Will you pick new version of libehca from that dir?
2) When I used the install.sh script to install the software packages or
them on ppc64, kernel 2.6.18-rc5/6 I got the following error messages:
gcc -m64 -Wp,-MD,/var/tmp/OFEDRPM/BUILD/openib-1.1

If I use the kernel Makefile in /usr/src/linux-2.6.18-rc5 to compile e.g.
make -C /usr/src/linux-2.6.18-rc5 SUBDIRS=/var/tmp/OFEDRPM/BUILD/openib-1.1
then it works fine. We found out that the top-level kernel Makefile does
the following settings
LINUXINCLUDE := -Iinclude \
$(if $(KBUILD_SRC),-Iinclude2 -I$(srctree)/include) \
CPPFLAGS := -D__KERNEL__ $(LINUXINCLUDE)
that include autoconf.h with all configured kernel configs like
CONFIG_PPC64 etc. And obviously those
config defines are lost if one uses
/usr/src/linux-2.6.18-rc5/scripts/Makefile.build as OFED install.sh
does. I'm wondering if anyone else also sees this problem on other
Is there any reasons not to use the top-level kernel Makefile?
