libibverbs is a library that allows userspace processes to use
InfiniBand "verbs" as described in the InfiniBand Architecture
Specification. This includes direct hardware access for fast path
libibverbs is a library for using the "userspace verbs" support that was added in kernel 2.6.13. I will post a separate review request for the libmthca plug-in, which provides device-specific support for Mellanox InfiniBand hardware.
This is my first package, so I need a sponsor as well.
*** Bug 169752 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
- please change Source from:
since the former is an invalid URL
+ license is OK and included per license terms (good!)
+ source matches upstream
+ builds in mock on FC-4
+ spec is clean/readable
+ code not content
+ proper use of devel
+ *.la are deleted and ldconfig OK
+ no complaints or warnings from rpmlint
Unfortunately, I don't have any IB hardware to test it on (we use
Myrinet and/or ethernet for our clusters).
But regardless, this appears to be a good, clean first package.
And yes, I volunteer to sponsor you so please feel free to contact
me if you have any questions, etc.
libibverbs is now in FC-4 and devel.
