When trying to install Mageia on Packet.net c2.medium.x86 which comes with 2 Mellanox 10Gbps adapters the installer failed to find a network adapter both in Mageia 6 and Cauldron.
I ended up installing one of their provided distributions:
# cat /sys/class/net/*/device/uevent
And indeed we don't have MLX5 in our kernel:
[pterjan@mageia kernel]$ grep -r MLX5
PATCHES/configs/i386.config:# CONFIG_MLX5_CORE is not set
PATCHES/configs/x86_64.config:# CONFIG_MLX5_CORE is not set
Oooh, wonder how I missed that one :/
Anyway, fix queued for next mga6 and Cauldron kernel
Cauldron kernel-4.17.3-2.mga7 building
With the now built/uploaded kernel-4.17.3-2.mga7 and drakx-installer-images-2.51-1.mga7 a cauldron install should work
Thanks for the quick update, I tried last night and I can confirm the 2 interfaces are now detected by stage1 and networking is working.
