Description dagray 2021-06-21 17:30:49 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1974429 +++

The NVIDIA GPU operator currently requires entitlements to build the driver container, but the driver-toolkit could be used to prevent this. The problem is that the driver-toolkit is currently missing the gcc package needed for this driver-container. This is needed for RHODS.

The fix is to install gcc, specifically the version used to compile the kernel when available.

Verified in build: 4.8.0-0.nightly-2021-06-23-232238

1. Go to the OpenShift release nightly build page for the nightly build, click "Download the installer," and then click "release.txt."

2. Search for "driver-toolkit" and pull the corresponding image to your dev machine with the command:
podman pull --authfile /path/to/pullsecret <openshift_release_repo>/<corresponding_image_to_your_dev_machine>

3. Enter the following command from the terminal:
podman run <image_from_previous_step> dnf list installed | grep gcc

Output from the command in step #3:

gcc.x86_64                                    8.4.1-1.el8                          @rhel-8-appstream-rpms-x86_64
libgcc.x86_64                                 8.4.1-1.el8                          @System
