Alternatively, a source RPM can be built from the Onload tarball.

  1. Download the required tarball from the NIC Software and Drivers web page.
  2. As root, execute the following command:
    rpmbuild -ts onload-<version>.tgz*
     x86_64 Wrote: /root/rpmbuild/SRPMS/onload-<version>.src.rpm 

    The output identifies the location of the source RPM. For instructions on installing this, see Building and Installing from a Source RPM.

    Note: Use the -ta option to generate a binary RPM.
