    Hey @MiniKnight

    I just tried this and did have to do the .deb install. I also had an error:
    Code:
    Error: The current mlnx-en is intended for debian9.0
    
    So I fixed that and updated your guide with:
    Code:
    ./install --skip-distro-check

    The Proxmox kernel is a custom build of the upstream kernel, for Proxmox 5.1 currently based on 4.13-4. The Proxmox 5.1 user level libraries are Debian 9.0. The flag Patrick noted has to be set is because the kernel does not identify itself as Debian.

    Nice.
    Is this a working dkms-install ?

    The last time i tried to install ofed it ran badly into some dependency mismatch. The result were either removed pve-packages or the installer stuck in a loop while checking deps. So i stayed with the in-tree tools and modules, what also works.

    # lsb_release is required to continue
    # Current operation system is not supported!

    Any ideas?
