The DGX Software for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, EL8-22.06, is available.

EL8-22.06 supports all DGX products - DGX A100, DGX-2, DGX-1, DGX A100, DGX Station, and DGX Station A100.

Important: Installing or updating to EL8-22.06 also updates the installed Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 distribution to the latest version.
  • NVIDIA GPUDirect Storage (GDS) v1.1 does not support Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.5.

    If you are using GDS 1.1, contact NVIDIA Enterprise Support before performing the upgrade.

  • If you need to use the Mellanox OpenFabrics Enterprise Distribution for Linux (MLNX_OFED), before you install or update to EL8-22.06, ensure that there is a MLNX_OFED package version available that supports the latest Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 version.

    Refer to the DGX Software for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 Installation Guide for instructions.

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.
