Normally I don't contradict, but he's asking about the client as far as I understand.

The client can be built from source for any kernel* up to 4.2 (lustre 2.8) and Lustre 2.9 I believe was patched to work with newer kernels but we haven't tested yet.

* not quite any, you probably need at least kernel 2.6.X but that is still almost any kernel released in the past few years.

The Lustre 2.8.0 release was only built with CentOS 7.2, and AFAIK there are a number of patches needed to build against CentOS 7.3 which are included in the Lustre 2.9.0 release.

Hi Lustre experts

I was wondering the possibility to build lustre client of version 2.8.0 with CentOS 7.3 “3.10.0-514.2.2.el7.x86_64” from the SRPM of “

Somehow there are some modifications in the kernel source. Just like the report on the mail archive (see below).


Could we build the rpm files of lustre client 2.8.0 with git source successfully?

I try the SRPM of lustre 2.9.0 with CentOS 7.3.1611. It works.  

Thanks in advances.
