Version EL7-19.09

The DGX Software for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, EL7-19.09 update, is available.

Important: Installing or updating to EL7-19.09 also updates the installed Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 distribution to the latest version. If you require use of the Mellanox OpenFabrics Enterprise Distribution for Linux (MLNX_OFED), then before installing or updating to EL7-19.09, be sure that there is a MLNX_OFED package version available that supports the latest Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 version. If a supporting MLNX_OFED package has been released, then be sure to install it.

Change Highlights

The following changes were made to the default repository.
  • Updated NVIDIA Driver to version 410.129: Includes security updates. See the Driver Release Notes for more information.

Update Repository

The optional repository was created for updating the NVIDIA driver to the R418 driver branch, CUDA 10.1, and other software packages associated with CUDA 10.1.

These updates are available only if you have enabled the optional update repository. See the document DGX-Software-Stack-for-Red-Hat-Enterprise-Linux-on-DGX (available to DGX customers with an NVIDIA Enterprise Support account) for instructions on updating the NVIDIA repositories.

Software Contents:

The following table provides version information for software included in the DGX Software Stack for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

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. This is due to the likelihood of the MLNX_OFED kernel  being out of sync with the Red Hat distribution kernel. This can result in system instability. To use InfiniBand on the DGX system, see the DGX Software for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Installation Guide for instructions.
