Hi all,

The bulk of the OFED 1.5 sources have now been uploaded to:


The packages all build, but have received no testing, so should be used
with extreme caution.

Bits left to do:

*There are some conflicts between the  compat-dapl and  daplv2 packages.
*The ofed metapackage need updating.

Upstream Bugs:
*OFED 1.5 breaks openmpi, so use with extreme caution. Fixes are
scheduled for OFED 1.5.1

Given the OFED 1.5 /openmpi breakage, I was planning on holding off from
uploading binary packages to alioth until OFED 1.5.1 is released.
