Description Götz Waschk 2008-08-12 09:26:25 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm trying to build lustre with infiniband support against the RHEL4.7 kernel. The headers the configure script is looking for aren't available.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install kernel-smp-devel
2. unpack lustre from http://lustre.org
3. run configure. 

Actual results:
it should detect infiniband support in the kernel

Expected results:
infiniband is not detected

Additional info:
The script is looking for the following headers:

They are included in RHEL 5 in kernel-devel 2.6.18-92.1.10.el5:
% rpm -ql kernel-devel-2.6.18-92.1.10.el5|fgrep rdma
