This section identifies the procedures to build and install Onload from a DKMS package. It uses OpenOnload as an example, but the same procedures apply to any other Onload distributions in this format.

DKMS packages are available for OpenOnload from version 201811 onwards.

DKMS must be installed on the server. DKMS can be downloaded from or from the OS distribution. To check this run the following command which will return nothing if DKMS is not installed:

# dkms --version
