Software Contents

The following table provides version information for software included in the DGX Software Stack for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.

note:: Unlike the DGX OS shipped with the NVIDIA DGX system, the DGX software stack for Red Hat does not include the Mellanox OpenFabrics Enterprise Distribution (MLNX_OFED) for Linux. When using MLNX_OFED with Red Hat, ensure you install a supported MLNX_OFED kernel version to avoid incompatibilities with the Red Hat distribution kernel. Refer to the DGX Software for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 Installation Guide for instructions.
